C&B Marine receives first COI issued by U.S. Coast Guard in Sector Ohio Valley

C&B Marine received the first Certificate of Inspections (COI) issued by U.S. Coast Guard Sector Ohio Valley under Subchapter M, the new regulations governing the towing industry.

On July 23, the MV Atlantis was inspected and received its COI, and on Aug. 13, the MV Christine received its inspection and COI.

C&B Marine has been working in close partnership with the U.S. Coast Guard Cincinnati MSD group and Sector Ohio Valley team for many months prior to these compliance dates to ensure a smooth transition into the Subchapter M world.

“I want to thank the local Coast Guard group and the rest of the Sector Ohio Valley team for their cooperation and patience in assisting C&B with the implementation and planning efforts needed to ensure that all C&B Marine vessels are safe and compliant,” Scott Bray said.

C&B Marine has more than 20 vessels that operate in the Sector Ohio Valley area of operations and has a full-service towing and fleeting operation in the Greater Cincinnati area.
