Safety Zone; IJSBA World Finals, Lower Colorado River, Lake Havasu, AZ
The Coast Guard proposes a temporary safety zone on the navigable waters of Lake Havasu on the lower Colorado River in Arizona in support of the International Jet Sports Boating Association (IJSBA) World Finals. This temporary safety zone is necessary to provide for the safety of the participants, crew, spectators, participating vessels, and other vessels and users of the waterway. Persons and vessels would be prohibited from entering into, transiting through, or anchoring within this temporary safety zone unless authorized by the Captain of the Port San Diego or his designated representative.
Safety Zone: F/V PATRIOT, Massachusetts Bay, MA
The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone surrounding the sunken fishing vessel PATRIOT located approximately 17 miles northeast of Scituate, Massachusetts, in Massachusetts Bay. The safety zone is in effect while the vessel remains on the sea floor and subsequently re-floated during salvage operations. The safety zone will then move with the vessel until the F/V PATRIOT is safely moored. This action is necessary to ensure that vessels are not endangered by conducting dredging, diving, anchoring, fishing or other activities while the F/V PATRIOT sits on the sea floor. This action is also necessary to assist in providing a safe work environment for those conducting the salvage operation. This temporary rulemaking is needed to protect the environment, the commercial fishing industry, salvage operators and the general public from potential hazards associated with the sunken vessel and from potential hazards associated with the salvage of the vessel.

Notice of Arrival on the Outer Continental Shelf
The Coast Guard proposes to enhance maritime domain safety and security awareness on units and personnel engaging in activities on the Outer Continental Shelf by proposing regulations which will require notice of arrival for units planning to engage in Outer Continental Shelf activities. The proposed rules would implement provisions of the Security and Accountability for Every Port Act of 2006 and increase overall maritime domain awareness by requiring owners or operators of United States and foreign flag floating facilities, mobile offshore drilling units, and vessels to submit notice of arrival information to the National Vessel Movement Center prior to engaging in Outer Continental Shelf activities.
