COLREG Lights, Shapes and Sound Signals


Ok general roll20 and rural 32 light and shape signals are to be displayed in all different weather and sea conditions the lights must be sunrise the main lights defined rules are the following our white lights on the four visible from right ahead round 1 bath the beam on each side masts the foremast lighter than the aftermath light that lights either red or green level point five degrees on the problem is to starboard lower than the lowest masthead light this is to where the sidelights finish but having the same features as the stone the signal lights which are sometimes used can be red green or white in color and shown around the horizon a full 360 degrees shapes shapes defined in these rules consists of a ball a cone a cylinder or a diamond at all black and normally shown where they can best be seen unless stated otherwise roll 21 definitions of lights and shapes extracts from tonics one technical details of lights extracts from an x1 technical details of shapes roll 21 definitions of lights and shapes a masthead light means a white light placed over the fore-and-aft centerline of the vessel showing an unbroken light over dark the horizon of 25 degrees and so fixed as to show the light from right above the beam on either side of this means a green light on the starboard each showing an unbroken light point five degrees and so the length the sidelights maybe compact centerline of the vessel like light placed as nearly as practic and so fixed as to show the light d light means a yellow lights have defined in paragraph C of this room light over an arc of the horizon f flashing see of 120 flashes or more per minute extracts from this one positioning and technical details of lights and shapes one definition the term height above the hull means height above the other most continuous deck this height shall be measured from the position vertically beneath the location of the light to vertical positioning and spacing of lights they on a power-driven vessel of 20 meters or more in length the masthead light shall be placed as follows first before word masthead light or if only one masthead light is carried then that light and six meters that love the whole not less than such breath so however that the light need 12 meters five meters vertically higher than the features from the stem when feud for the height above the whole not greater they should not be solo extract from an x1 shapes continued black and of the following sizes shall have a diameter of not less to have a base diameter of not less than 0.6 meter at a height equal to its diameter three-cylinder shall have a diameter of at least 0.6 meter at the height of twice its diameter for the diamond shape shall consist of two cones as defined in two above having a common base be the vertical distance between shapes shall be at least 1.5 meters a power-driven vessel 250 meters in length when underway show to mast headlights the lowest one forward of the other a sidelight on each side of the vessel and a stern light however to mast lights do not indicate the vessel is over has a length between 12 and 15 masthead light side light and 12 meters it is only required and went less the power of inviting and restricted visibility on the whistle at intervals of not when under minutes with about two seconds says in addition to the steaming lights air cushion craft may show and all-round flashing yellow light and a way craft shows a high-intensity all-round flashing red light Rule 23 power-driven vessel underway roll 35 sound signals in restricted visibility roll 23

and maneuvering as required by these rules should indicate its intentions by the following blood which may be suddenly an equivalent flesh of the maneuvering light if desired one short last one flash I am altering my course to stop too short blasts two flashes meaning i am altering my course to port three short blasts three flashes meaning i’m operating a stone propulsion the maneuvering light and x1 if fitted the light to supplement the maneuvering sound signals showed if practicable be placed two meters above the forward masthead light extract from rule 34 maneuvering and warning signals extract from an x1 maneuvering light when in a narrow channel fairway one ship intends to overtake another which has seen ahead and requires that vessel to take action to allow safe passage followed by a short blast away stop site too long blasts followed by two short blasts on the whistle from the overtime the ship being overtaken should indicate her agreement by sounding a long blast let us see acceptance of being overtaken another and failing to understand or agree with her intentions and it out by some more more short and wrapping yours to show doubt or of the other ships and the signal may be supplemented by a light flashing with the same sequence extract from rule 34 maneuvering and warning signals when the vessel approaches the bend in a river or fairway where other vessels around a bend in the river hearing this signal should answer with a similar last text from you maneuvering the morning signals when a ship would like to attract the attention of another ship it can give sound or light signals that cannot be mistaken for any other lights or signals described in these rules will create any confusion with any other 82 navigation directing a such light in the direction
