Thank you for using the TugSafe application (Inspected Towing Vessel Decision Aid) for 46 CFR subchapter M.

This decision aid is designed to assist with preparation, completion and documentation of inspections or surveys of commercial towing vessels required to comply with 46 CFR Subchapter M. The job aid will generate a custom requirement list for a specific commercial towing vessel using any computer, laptop, tablet or smart phone.

⚠  In order for this application to generate an appropriate custom checklist of requirements, each question must be accurately answered - unanswered questions may have a dramatic affect on the output of this decision aid.

If you have questions about how to comply with requirements listed by the job aid please contact your local Officer in Charge Marine Inspection (OCMI), the nearest District Towing Vessel Safety Specialist or the Coast Guard Towing Vessel National Center of Expertise (TVNCOE) for additional clarification.
Select the contacts button on the left for more information.
