The Coast Guard is changing the way in which we make Local Notices to Mariners available to the public. We will continue to publish electronic versions of these notices and make them available free of charge via the Internet, but we will no longer print and mail copies of each notice.

To improve service and reduce costs, the U.S. Coast Guard is moving to issuance of the Local Notices to Mariners (LNM) exclusively via the Internet. Recently, we revised our Aids to Navigation (AtoN) Manual (COMDTINST M16500.7) to authorize elimination of printed LNM. Effective April 1, 2004, the U.S. Coast Guard will no longer print and mail copies of each LNM. A Notice concerning implementation of Internet delivery of LNM will be published in the Federal Register on March 2, 2004. The notice can be accessed at <url></url>

The electronic versions of LNM appear on the U.S. Coast Guard Navigation Centerís Website at

For many years, each U.S. Coast Guard district has printed and mailed LNM free of charge to any mariner requesting a subscription. LNM provide important safety information; however, the cost of printing and mailing has become prohibitive. Technology now allows us to provide LNM in a timelier and less costly manner via the Internet. All individuals are encouraged to register for List Server notification on the Navigation Centerís Website, so when LNM are posted for the district(s) in which you are interested, you will receive automatic notification of their availability.

Internet delivery of the LNM is part of a much larger U.S. Coast Guard effort to integrate, improve, and streamline the collection and dissemination of all navigation safety information.

The 2004 USCG Light List, Volumes I-VII, corrected thru Local Notice to Mariner 05/2004, is available for download at

In addition, you may download the new 2004 NAV AIDS reference manual, separate from the Light List, to minimize download time.

You also may view the 2004 Light List Summary of Corrections or download the 2004 USCG Light List Nav Aid Reference Guide (front matter).

Users interested in Canadian maritime navigation and safety information may visit the Canadian "Notmar" site.
