The Coast Guard is proposing to modify an existing safety zone for certain waters of the Gastineau Channel. This action is necessary to provide for safety of vessels anchoring on these navigable waters. This proposed rulemaking would prohibit vessels, other than large passenger vessels from anchoring within the safety zone without the express consent from the Captain of the Port, Southeast Alaska, or a designated representative. We invite your comments on this proposed rulemaking and are particularly interested in any potential impact to underwater cables in the Gastineau Channel affected by this proposed rulemaking.
