5/8/2018: Towing Vessel National Center of Expertise adds Tugsafe “Lite” to suite of Subchapter M job aids

The Coast Guard released TugSafe in December 2017. TugSafe is designed to streamline and maximize efficiency of the Subchapter M inspection process by providing no guesswork inspections by dynamically generating a customized inspection checklist specific to a given towing vessel. After numerous requests from the towing community, the Towing Vessel National Center of Expertise announced that it has launched TugSafe “Lite” to allow access to the TugSafe compliance guidance without the need to generate a checklist for a specific vessel.
