Default Another Civics Question

For whatever reasons, President Obama has had to rely on Executive Orders to implement some of his programs. My question is, could the President exempt the Magnificent Lady by issuing an executive order?
It seems to me if an executive order has the power to raise the minimum wage requirements for govt. contractors, an executive order would have the power to exempt one steamboat from SOLAS a law that stands for Safety of Life at SEA, not the RIVER.
