Background And Purpose
The tug boat LA FORCE will operate as part of an articulated tug and barge (ATB). Due to the design of the vessel, it would be difficult and impractical to build a supporting structure that would put the side lights within 3.5′ from the greatest breadth of the Vessel, as required by Annex I, paragraph 3(b) of the 72 COLREGS and Annex I, Section 84.05(b), of the Inland Rules Act.
The Certificate of Alternative Compliance allows for the placement of the side lights to deviate from requirements set forth in Annex I, paragraph 3(b) of 72 COLREGS, and Annex I, paragraph 84.05(b) of the Inland Rules Act.Start Signature
Dated: June 11, 2009.
