Default Surely I'm not the first!

Surely I am not the first to think of this:

The SOLAS rules were passed because the U. S. Coasst Guard could not enforce its rules on ships with "flags of convenience". Instead, they had a law passed that forbade such ships from taking passengers from American ports, which they COULD enforce.

A simple declaration that the inland rivers are ports would solve this exemption problem, for American riverboats would then never leave port!

In fact, landings can be made on both shores the full length of these rivers; ergo, they are ALL PORT.
