Background and Purpose Back to Top

A Certificate of Alternative Compliance, as allowed for under Title 33, Code of Federal Regulation, Parts 81 and 89, has been issued for the offshore supply vessel CALLAIS SEARCHER, O.N. 1226876. The horizontal distance between the forward and aft masthead lights may be 20′-85/8″. Placing the aft masthead light at the horizontal distance from the forward masthead light as required by Annex I, paragraph 3(a) of the 72 COLREGS, and Annex I, Section 84.05(a) of the Inland Rules Act, would result in an aft masthead light location directly over the cargo deck where it would interfere with loading and unloading operations. The offset from centerline of the RAM/NUC lights may be 3′. Offsetting the RAM/NUC lights 2 meters from the centerline as required by Annex I paragraph 3(c) the 72 COLREGS and Annex I, Section 84.05(c) of the Inland rules Act would place them in an exposed position beyond the width of the aft end of the pilothouse.
