(1) 33CFR181.29(c) The number on a separate plate was attached only by rivets. Fastening the plate with an adhesive in addition to the rivets will resolve the issue.(2) 33CFR181.15(d) There was additional information shown on the certification label including the statement “SLOW DOWN BEFORE MAKING SHARP TURNS, EXERCISE CAUTION WHILE MANEUVERING” and a “CONSTRUCTION PROCESS PATENT” line. This same issue of noncompliance was reported to you with respect to the patent statement in my letter of July 14, 2017 for boat test case number 17CG101S and in my letter of January 30, 2018 for boat test case number 18CG123S. This information needs to be on a separate label or separated from the certification label by means of a border. (3) The letters on the certification statement and manufacturer address on the certification label were less than one-eighth of an inch in height. This same issue of noncompliance was reported to you for those same case numbers 17CG101S and 18CG123S as above.
