Containers marked with stowage instructions such as “This side up” or “This end up” shall be so stowed.

(d) Railroad vehicles, highway vehicles, vans and portable containers equipped with refrigerating or heating equipment using an inflammable (flammable) liquid or gas as fuel, and having such fuel in the fuel tank shall be transported only "On deck". Such equipment may be operated on board the vessel when the "On deck" stowage is provided. Vehicles stowed “On deck" may be refueled under supervision of an officer of the vessel who shall ensure that adequate safety precautions are observed. If the equipment is secured, and the fuel tank completely drained, the railroad vehicle, highway vehicle, van or portable container may be stowed in accordance with the requirements of this subpart.

(b) The master or other person in charge of the vessel shall assign an oficer of the vessel to supervise the acceptance and stowage of railroad or highway vehicles, vans or portable containers containing permitted explosives or other dangerous articles or substances. This oficer shall examine the vehicles or containers for signs of leaking, damage to the container, or sifting of contents. For tanks he shall examine dome covers to ascertain if they are fitted securely; check valves, piping and the tanks for leakage or excess residue of lading. Any vehicle or container found to be damaged, leaking or sifting, or having excess residue of lading adhering thereto shall not be accepted for transportation.

Vehicles or other containers loaded with permitted explosives are not required to be given magazine stowage provided the vehicles or containers form a complete magazine. Such vehicles, vans, or portable containers may be stowed “Under deck" and away from all sources of heat, and not overstowed. No vehicle, van or container containing any other dangerous articles that require a placard by this subpart shall be stowed within a distance of 100 feet or unless separated by two continuous permanent decks or bulkheads from vehicles, vans or containers loaded with Class A or Class B explosives. Blasting caps or other detonators in any quantity shall not be transported in the same vehicle, van or portable container with any other explosives. In addition to the usual securing means provided, vehicles or containers loaded with explosives shall be anchored by an additional securing means satisfactory to the United States Coast Guard and the master of the vessel

so as to completely secure the entire unit to prevent any movement of the body thereof.

(b) Other dangerous articles. Vehicles, vans or portable containers loaded with any other permitted dangerous article shall be stowed on board the vessel in accordance with the stowages required in the tables for the substances within the vehicles. Such stowages are not feasible in each instance for railroad or highway vehicles, vans, or portable containers stowed below deck on vessels; and, for the purpose of adopting these stowages to the conditions incident to transportation of railroad and highway vehicles, vans, and portable containers in this method of transportation, a conversion table is shown in paragraph (c) of this section. Permitted stowages as shown in Tables A through K for the substances loaded within the vehicles may be converted in accordance with this conversion table.
