In the regulations were again amended. So when two vessels are approaching each other, both having the wind free and consequently the power of readily controlling their movements, the vessel on oclregs larboard tack must give way and each 197 to the right.

The mariners need to understand these qualities and limitations thoroughly. WIG crafts are not to be considered as seaplanes or non-displacement craft. Marine Order 4 Transitional modifications provides for this Order to have effect and makes modifications for it. Turn on more accessible mode.

Retrieved 13 February A departure is only permitted when there are special circumstances and there is immediate danger. The words are listed in rank order. They have been amended several times since their first adoption.

Background lights and backscatter decrease the effectiveness of a lookout by sight and therefore require a proportional decrease in speed.

Further recommendations were made by a S. However, timely notice of intended variations of engine speed should be given when possible.


International Regulations For Preventing Collisions At Sea, 1972

Among the nautical rules applicable to the navigation of sailing vessels are the following, viz.: Rule 38 says ships which comply with the Collision Regulations and were built or already under construction when the Collision Regulations entered into force may be exempted from some requirements for light and sound signals for specified periods.

The table referred to shall be established in a standardized format in the working language or languages of the ship and in English. These terms are defined in Rule 3. Absolute Right of Way A commonly held misconception concerning the rules of marine navigation is that by following specific rules, a vessel can gain certain rights of way over other vessels. We shall also discuss about some situations and their correct actions to co-relate them with usual Oral Questions.

Traffic density is important because the probability of a collision increases with the density iii The maneuverability of the vessel with special reference to stopping distance and turning ability in the prevailing conditions; Note: Department of Transportation s Federal Highway Administration.

Because of their lower power and higher pulse repetition rate, these navigation radars–also called three centimeter 3 cmX-band, and high frequency radars–have a limited range.

Relative-motion displays allow the observer to assess more quickly the movement of other vessels in relation to his or her own movement. Rule 29 covers light requirements for pilot vessels.


At whatever rate she the steamer was going, if going at such a rate as made it dangerous to any craft which she ought to have seen, and might have seen, she had no right to go at that rate. A vessel is unable to alter her course due to the presence of shallow water although she is required to do so in compliance with some rules Rule, 15 etc.


If a vessel’s draft exceeds the depth outside a channel, the vessel coregs be limited to straight-line stopping within the channel, which is less effective than a combination of slowing or reversing coregs and turning away. Because of the nature of her work: Rules of the Road-International and Inland.

The value of radar in assessing risk of collision in poor visibility is obvious. General Definitions a the word vessel includes every description of water craft, including non-displacement craft, WIG craft and seaplanes, used or capable of being used as a means of transportation on water. We ve, so far, covered Rule-1 to Rrule and intend to add the remaining rules soon. Full appraisal of the situation: It is this broad objective that you should keep in mind when managing the lookout.

As AIS can be used to advantage for collision avoidance, such as in determining the identity of another vessel and in more rapid detection of changes of heading, vessels may be expected to make use of the equipment in appropriate circumstances.

As the visibility decreases, the level of effort to maintain a proper lookout increases tremendously. True motion is generally more suitable for use with the lower range scales in congested waters rather than in the open sea.

Vessels fishing with trolling lines: Rule 30 covers light requirements for vessels anchored and aground.
