the locations of HRW and to the guidelines for addressing security 
risks in those waters. The Coast Guard advises such owners and 
operators that, under Revision 7, they may need to take specific 
actions in accordance with MARSEC Directive 104-6 before their vessel 
enters HRW. This notice is issued under the authority of 5 U.S.C.
