Fire Protection for Recreational Vessels
The Coast Guard is amending fire extinguishing equipment regulations for recreational vessels that are propelled or controlled by propulsion machinery.

To make it easier to find these regulations, this rule also relocates the regulations to another part of the Code of Federal Regulations.
