Vessels Carrying Passengers For Hire
(Natural Resources , Law Enforcement Division)

The rules establish minimum safety standards for charter boats. Proposed amendments include: 1. Update the statutory authority for the rules. Public Act 228 of 1965 has been repealed and the rules authority is now contained in 1994 PA 451. 2. Rescinding ventilation standards and rail heights. MCL 324.44504(2) states simply that vessel ventilation and rail height shall be consistent with generally accepted and federally approved manufacturing processes. 3. Amending the rules regarding average minimum passenger weight. The rules create confusion in that U. S. Coast Guard standards for calculating average minimum passenger weight is now 180 pounds and these administrative rules state the average minimum passenger weight shall be calculated at 150 pounds. In order to be in compliance with this federal standard, R 281.3113 requires amendment to reflect the federal standard of 180 pounds.
