The available additional equipment necessary to meet the applicable rules and regulations is required in all lifeboats on ocean and coastwise vessels. All passenger vessels shall have this equipment on board at the time of the first inspection for certification after 26 May 1966. All tank, cargo, and miscellaneous vessels shall have this equipment on board at the time of the first inspection for certification or midperiod inspection, whichever occurs first, after 26 May 1966. If the owner, agent, or master of a vessel can show to the satisfaction of the Officer in Charge, Marine Inspection, that compliance with such equipment regulations is unreasonable or such equipment cannot be obtained, then the Officer in Charge, Marine Inspection, may issue a deficiency notice on Form CG-835 specifying a date by which the equipment shall be on board, which in no event shall exceed 6 months from date Form CG-835 is issued.

LIFEBOAT EQUIPMENT

NEW EQUIPMENT LISTED

In the Federal Register of 8 September 1965 (30 F.R. 11414-11495) it was noted that certain items of new lifeboat equipment primarily necessitated by the 1960 SOLAS Convention may not be available and a reasonable time would be given to bring the vessel into compliance (30 F.R. 11415). Except for the 15-minute

COLD WEATHER USE OF UNICELLULAR PLASTIC FOAM LIFE PRESERVERS

of such equipment prior to dates for the scheduled inspections of their vessels is essential since the Officer in Charge, Marine Inspection, must have reasonable grounds, other than failure to order the equipment, before he may exercise the latitude provided. From the Federal Register of March 4, 1966. CIRCULARS

NVIC 0–66 LISTS ALL CIRCULARS IN FORCE

The annual listing of navigation and vessel inspection circulars in force has been made in NVIC 0–66, available at the local marine inspection office.

Coast Guard Merchant Marine inspectors observed that vinyl dip coated plastic foam life preservers with approval numbers between 160.055/1 and 160.055/49 stowed on open decks became much less flexible in cold weather. This loss in flexibility could prevent a person from stretching the head opening wide enough to don these life preservers. All vessels on routes where the air temperature will be below 28° F. that have on board unicellular plastic foam life preservers are advised to check them for donning at these low temperatures. Those life preservers that cannot be donned at low temperatures should be stowed inside or transferred to vessels on routes with warmer air temperatures. The production of these life preservers has been stopped.. Those life preservers now produced with approval numbers 160.055/50 and over may be donned in cold weather without difficulty.

dently with the thought that short members are not subjected to full stress, items such as car or crane rails have sometimes been fitted in short lengths with gaps between each section. While the stress in the portion of such members farthest removed from the plating to which they are attached may be less than that in the plating, the stress along the line of attachment is the same as that in the plating. In addition, the stress concentration and conditions of restraint existing at each end of each section provide a potential fracture source at each such point.

Referring particularly to the application of car or crane rails on vessel and barge decks, direct welded connection of such members to decks may not be satisfactory. This is because the higher carbon content of rail steel and other properties which may be at variance from those specified for ship steel may appreciably reduce the notch toughness. While there may be some instances of apparently satisfactory performance of such installations, it is believed that these may be simply fortuitous, and may reflect the fact that the properties of some of these steels can vary over a pretty wide range and therefore may sometimes be appreciably better than the prevailing average.

The circular specifies that the full approval of the American Bureau of Shipping (or other classification society recognized by the Coast Guard) and of the Commandant (MMT) shall be obtained whenever steels other than those complying with the requirements of section 39 of the American Bureau of Shipping Rules are proposed for use either directly in the hull structure or in subsidiary items attached by welding to the higher stressed portions of the main hull structure such as the deck, upper side shell, bilge or bottom. For such an application to be considered, full details shall be furnished as to the physical properties (including notch ductility and fatigue and corrosion data, when pertinent) and chemical properties of the steel in question together with pertinent related structural details. Copies of NVIC 1-66 may be obtained at the local marine inspection office or by writing Commandant (CHS) U.S. Coast Guard, Washington, D.C., 20226.

STORES AND SUPPLIES

Articles of ships' stores and supplies certificated from March 1, to March 31, 1966, inclusive, for use on board vessels in accordance with the provisions of Part 147 of the regulations governing “Explosives or Other Dangerous Articles on Board Vessels" are as follows:

STRUCTURAL STEEL
CONTINUITY RULES

Navigation and Vessel Inspection Circular No. 1-66 has been published to point out the need for special consideration whenever it is proposed to use steels other than ordinary ship steel or specially approved steels in hull construction. The circular also points out the need for recognizing that fittings, etc., attached by welding to any part of the ship's structure generally tend to share the stress borne by that part of the structure. Cases have recently come to attention where steels not complying with section 39 of the American Bureau of Shipping Rules and not entirely suitable have been used or are proposed for use.

In order to be suitable for use in ships' hulls, steel needs to be suited to ship fabrication procedures, to have sufficient strength, and to have sufficient ductility and notch toughness for the ambient temperatures which may occur. To be adequate it should sufficiently meet each of these conditions, i.e., an excess ability in any one respect does not satisfactorily compensate for a deficiency in any other. Considering these requirements, it is necessary to recognize that even items which are intended to serve no structural function and which are totally disregarded in the making of strength calculations, need to be regarded as structural if they are connected by welding to the more highly stressed elements of a ship's structure. This is because the continuity provided by the welding generally results in such members being subjected, at least in part, to the same stresses as the member to which they are attached. Thus, half rounds fitted around hatch coamings bear the same stress as the adjoining coaming material, etc. Evi
