liquids. A combustible liquid is defined for the purpose of the regulations in this subchapter as any liquid which gives off inflammable (flammable) vapors (as determined by flash point from Tagliabue's open-cup tester as used for test of burning oils) at or below a temperature of 150° F. and above 80° F. This definition is binding on all shippers making shipments of combustible liquids by any passenger vessel, and shall apply to owners, charterers, agents, master or other person in charge of a vessel and to other persons transporting, carrying, conveying, storing, stowing, or using combustible liquids on board passenger vessels subject to R. S. 4472, as amended, and the regulations in this subchapter. $ 146.26-5 Application to passenger

vessels. The provisions of R.S. 4472, as amended, require that combustible liquids in barrels, drums, or other packages, when transported, carried, conveyed, stored, stowed, or used on board any passenger vessel shall be regulated to the extent necessary to secure effective provisions against hazards to health, life, limb, or property created by dangerous articles or substances on board such vessels. The provisions of the regulations in this part are not applicable to combustible liquids that are transported, carried, conveyed, stored, or stowed in barrels, drums, or other packages on board cargo vessels. 8 146.26–10 Stowage on board passen

ger vessels. All combustible liquids permitted for transportation on board passenger vessels shall, when taken on board such vessels, be stowed in accordance with the provisions applying to the particular character of vessel as shown in the tables forming $ 146.26–100 and with the detailed regulations of stowage set forth in this subpart.

§ 146.26–15 Smoking or

prohibited. Smoking or the use of open flame is prohibited in the vicinity of combustible liquid cargo stowed “On deck" and in or adjacent to holds in which such cargo is stowed or to ventilators from such holds. Smoking or the use of open flame on the weather deck in the vicinity of loading or discharge operations is prohibited. Conspicuous signs warning against smoking or the use of open flame shall be posted in applicable parts of the vessel during loading or discharging of combustible liquid cargo, and in the vicinity of such cargo stowed “On deck" or ventilators from holds containing such cargo whenever such cargo is carried. 8 146.26–20 “On deck” stowage.

Combustible liquids, stowage of which is permitted “On deck” by the provisions of the tables forming $ 146.26–100, shall be properly secured when so stowed, in a manner satisfactory to the master of the vessel consistent with the following conditions:

(a) Such liquids shall be stowed as to provide safe access to the crew's quarters and to all parts of the deck required to be used in navigation and necessary working of the vessel.

(b) Combustible liquids shall not be stowed within a distance in a horizontal plane of 25 feet from an operating or embarkation point of a lifeboat when such point is at the same deck level as that upon which such liquids are stowed.

(c) Fire plugs, sounding pipes and access to same shall be maintained free an clear of combustible liquid cargo stowed on deck.

(d) Combustible liquid cargo shall be stowed well away from any deck or spaces provided for use of passengers. $146.26–25 “Under deck” stowage.

(a) Stowage of combustible liquid cargo “Under deck” shall be either in ventilated holds or in holds that are gastight.

(b) Combustible liquids stowed in a compartment or hold, a boundary, bulkhead, or deck of which, also forms & boundary to the boiler room or engine room or a coal bunker or galley shall not

be stowed within 20 feet of such bulkhead or deck. On vessels having internal combustion motors as a principal means of propulsion, combustible liquids may be stowed in a hold having a boundary bulkhead forming a division from the engine room without compliance with this requirement of stowing cargo 20 feet of such bulkhead. $ 146.26–30 Potable spirits.

Potable spirits packed in strong, tight barrels, drums, casks, wooden or fiberboard boxes may, when stowed in a com

partment not subject to artificial heat, be transported on board any passenger vessel without further restriction. $ 146.26–35 Use of power-operated in

dustrial trucks in spaces containing

combustible liquids. (a) Any approved power-operated industrial truck (see § 146.09–15) may be used in spaces in which combustible liquids are stowed, including the handling thereof, unless otherwise restricted by regulations in this part. (CGFR 61-44, 26 F.R. 11022, Nov. 23, 1961)
