d. Any vessel transporting or storing military explosives or hazardous munitions must, when in navigable
waters of the United States, have on board a dangerous cargo manifest, list, or stowage plan (BOE
6000). Check the stowage plan against the compatibility chart of BOE 6000 to ensure the items to be
stowed are compatible. See the example of a vessel's stowage plan in Figure 19.

almost always consist of railcars or MILVANs loaded with munitions.
