The Coast Guard published a final rule in the Federal Register on March 12, 2008 (73 FR 13125), creating three special anchorage areas in Yarmouth, Maine. That rule contained imprecise coordinates. With this document the Coast Guard is correcting the coordinates of the boundaries to the three Yarmouth special anchorages listed in 33 CFR 110.5, in response to more detailed information received from the National Ocean Service (NOS).
