[QUOTE=sailfish;165663]just to let everyone know cfr 184.04 was the only one that per trained to it. And upon reading it only 3 D made any sense of things. which says a vessel on a short route need not be fitted as long as the OCMI determines that radar is not needed due the the vessels route and weather conditions. HUMM let me get this right SAN FRANCISCO bay has no shipping traffic ,NO Tides , NO Fog and more. Than I guess I see things different.[/QUOTE]
Its your choice to eat the shit sandwich or not, if you don’t like the way joe boss does business then show him with your feet and walk away and work elsewhere. Personally I have a small radar on my personal small fishing boat and would never work on a boat without it. for $1,500, or less if you find a used one this problem would be solved, what a cheap fuck owner!
part d only applies to vessels that are otherwise required to be fitted with a radar, IIRC.
[B](a)[/B] A vessel must be fitted with a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) type accepted general marine radar system for surface navigation with a radar screen mounted at the primary operating station if:[B](1)[/B] The vessel is self-propelled;
B[/B] The vessel has an oceans, coastwise, limited coastwise, or Great Lakes route; and
B[/B] [B]The vessel carries more than 49 passengers.[/B]
B[/B] A ferry that carries more than 49 passengers on a rivers route not within one mile of land must be fitted with a FCC Type Accepted general marine radar system for surface navigation with a radar screen mounted at the primary operating station.
B[/B] The radar and its installation must be suitable for the intended speed and route of the vessel.
B[/B] A vessel operated on a short restricted route need not be fitted with a radar if the cognizant OCMI determines that a radar is not necessary due to the vessel’s route and local weather conditions[FONT=Roboto]
