Regulations Handbook: U.S. Coast Guard Regulations for Liquid Cargo Operations Regulations Handbook: U.S. Coast Guard Regulations for Liquid Cargo Operations
New edition! 500+ pages, soft cover. This edition virtually mirrors in format the authors’ previous book "Regulations Handbook: U.S. Coast Guard Regulations for Uninspected Towing Vessels." It is a highly detailed reference for professionals in liquid cargo operations. The book highlights individual regulations pertaining to all phases of liquid cargo operations and divides them into seven sections, each section then being further divided into subsections. Carefully indexed, it is designed for rapid use by anyone having responsibilities for safe liquid cargo operations: active tankermen earning their living pumping barges, dock PICs responsible for safe transfers at their facility, would-be tankermen seeking their first Merchant mariners Document, terminals owners needing a comprehensive reference book for their marine operations, tank barge owners and operators tasked with compliance with the many OPA 90 requirements, and even regulators tired of carrying around a box-full of regulations. The book includes virtually all of the tank barge and marine terminal regulations published from six volumes of U.S. Coast Guard regulations in Titles 33 and 46 in the Code of Federal Regulations. A postcard comes with the book giving the option to sign up for a free subscription to the handbook online. Usually same- or second-day shipping!

Regulations Handbook: U.S. Coast Guard Regulations for Uninspected Towing Vessels by Michael W. Rushing, Todd M. Rushing and Frederik A. Nyhuis, Jr. Regulations Handbook: U.S. Coast Guard Regulations for Uninspected Towing Vessels by Michael W. Rushing, Todd M. Rushing and Frederik A. Nyhuis, Jr.
Soft cover. This 6th Edition is filled with those regulation changes and additions, which, in turn, are vital for admiralty lawyers and companies involved in any phase of the water transportation industry under the control of the Coast Guard. In other words, the 5th edition will no longer cut it. Not only are the regulations in this book well categorized for easy reference, each is followed by footnotes directing readers to further information and (very importantly) the dates when the specific rules were last amended. We know this is not common, everyday reading material except for attorneys and those actually involved in transportation. But, if you find yourself in a pickle on the rivers (accidents, etc.) the book can let you know quickly what your legal obligations are. A postcard comes with the book giving the option to sign up for a free subscription to the handbook online. Usually same- or second-day shipping!
