PMV is an Oxymoron
 
From the FEDERAL REGISTER/ Vol. 74, No. 89/ Monday, May 11, 2009/ Notices, Pgs. 2184-2185. DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY, Coast Guard, (USCG 2004-17674) Craft Routinely Operated Dockside:

The U. S. Supreme Court issued in its decision in [I]Stewart v. Dutra Construction Co., Inc,[/I] 543 U.S. 481, 125 S Ct. 1118 (2008) that... a Permanently moored vessel is an [I]oxymoron.[/I] In light of Stewart, the USCG will not reclassify any vessel as a "permanently moored vessel", and "hereby cancel Chapter B.4 of the USCG Safety Manual, Vol. II...."

[I]Now chew on this one.[/I]

So--reading the entire article on referenced, what does it mean, both for the DQ and vessels like your own, Shipyard? I can't figure it out.

Yet to be determined, but I'm sure it will influence the outcome of both. Stay tuned.
