SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to 46 CFR part 389 (Docket No. 
MARAD-2008-0045) Determination of Availability of Coastwise-Qualified 
Vessels for the Transportation of Platform Jackets, the Final Rule 
requires that the Maritime Administration publish a notice in the 
Federal Register requesting that owners or operators (or potential 
owners or operators) of coastwise qualified launch barges notify us of: 
(1) Their interest in participating in the transportation and, if 
needed, the launching or installation of offshore platform jackets; (2) 
the contact information for their company; and, (3) the specifications 
of any currently owned or operated coastwise qualified launch barges or 
plans to construct same. In addition, we are also seeking information 
on non-coastwise qualified (U.S.-flag) launch barges as well.
