    Default 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 Stewart v. Dutra Construction Co., Inc, 543 U.S. 481, 125 S Ct. 1118 (2008) that... a Permanently moored vessel is an oxymoron. 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...."

    Now chew on this one.

    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.
