A REPORT TO CONGRESS CONCERNING THE NEED FOR ENGINEERS ON UNINSPECTED TOWING VESSELS. VOLUME I. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY AND SUMMARY

P. L. 92-339 included a requirement for a study to be conducted concerning the need for engineers on uninspected towing vessels. During the hearings on this legislation, Congress indicated its intent that the study include an analysis of casualty data. Based on an analysis of casualty data and other factors, a determination would be made whether having a requirement for engineers to be aboard uninspected towing vessels, while underway, would increase the safe navigation of these vessels. In conjunction with the study the Coast Guard solicited correspondence from towing vessel operators, concerned labor organizations, concerned management groups, government agencies, and trade organizations to determine their views on the need for engineering personnel aboard uninspected towing vessels.
