Rigging Inspections: USCG Draft Guidance (Inspected Vessels)

For those with interest in inspected vessel operations, you may already be following the USCG's gradual implementation of inspections processes and/or standards for masts and rigging.  Events over the past nine years have lead to increased attention to this area of the OCMI's annual inspection process.  Most recetnly, the USCG released a draft guidance (yet to be signed) that reveals what their approach will be for the future.  The URL link below contains access to this 36 page document as well as links to the CG's earlier discussions. http://schoonermermaid.com/blog/rigging-inspections-uscg-draft-national-note-cvc Cheers, Matt Rajkovich SV Mermaid
