1 Marine Safety Information Bulletin U.S. DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY U. S. Coast Guard Sector Honolulu Sand Island Parkway Honolulu, Hawaii (808) COAST GUARD GUIDANCE FOR DEAD SHIP MOVEMENT IN SECTOR HONOLULU CAPTAIN OF THE PORT ZONE 05 April 2016 Background. The purpose of this Marine Safety Information Bulletin (MSIB) is to communicate recommended practices for dead ship movements within the Sector Honolulu Captain of the Port (COTP) Zone. The Coast Guard is responsible for ensuring maritime safety on navigable waters and for protecting the marine environment from degradation resulting from the damage, destruction, or loss of vessels and shore structures. To aid in this mission, the Coast Guard Sector Honolulu COTP is issuing this MSIB to inform mariners involved in dead ship tows of practices recommended by the Coast Guard. These recommendations are meant to ensure these evolutions are conducted in a safe manner. Good communication and planning between all parties involved in the movement of a dead ship is essential to ensure a successful operation. This MSIB makes recommendations to industry that may avoid costly delays, facilitate communication, and improve safety in the Sector Honolulu COTP Zone. References. (a) 46 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) (b) 33 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 3.70 (c) 33 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) (d) Waterways Management, COMDTINST (series) (e) Coast Guard Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures , Dead Ship Movements Definition. A dead ship is defined in reference (a) as a condition of the vessel in which the main propulsion plant, boilers, and auxiliaries are not in operation due to the absence of power. For example, this may include a ship that is intended for scrapping and must be towed to the scrapping facility, or a disabled ship that must be towed to a repair facility. An un-powered barge would not ordinarily be considered a dead ship. However, certain specialized tug-andbarge combinations that have lost main propulsion could be considered a dead ship tow. Action: 1. Owners, agents, and other parties who intend on moving a "dead ship" within the Sector Honolulu COTP Zone, as described by reference (b), should take every precaution to

2 Marine Safety Information Bulletin ensure that the evolution is conducted in a safe manner. In accordance with reference (c), the COTP may restrict vessel movement if an unsafe condition should arise. The Sector Commander may also require an examination of the vessel by a Marine Inspector to determine the seaworthiness of the dead ship prior to transit into any harbor within the Sector Honolulu COTP Zone. 2. The development of a thorough tow plan for a dead ship operation is strongly encouraged. Once completed, it is requested that a copy be submitted to this office for review. The tow plan will assist the COTP in evaluating all conditions to determine if the dead ship tow should commence. The Coast Guard recommends addressing all items found in Appendix B of reference (e) in development of the tow plan. See the end of this MSIB for Appendix B of reference (e). 3. Nothing in this MSIB is intended to contravene or supersede any applicable U.S. law. 4. The COTP does not issue permits for dead ship tows in accordance with the guidance set forth in reference (d). However, early cooperation and communication with the Coast Guard is encouraged to facilitate the safe and effective execution of the dead ship tow. Depending upon the circumstances a COTP order or a safety zone may be put in place for the transit. 5. Any questions, comments, or correspondence regarding this Notice should be directed to the Waterways Management Division Chief at Coast Guard Sector Honolulu at (808) After hours the Waterways Management Division Chief can be reached through the Sector Command Center at (808)
