Lights and Shapes
are   signals   of   intent.   The   first   two   signals   must    be answered  by  the  other  vessel  in  sight  making  the  same signal before the proposed action is taken. Signal Meaning One short blast I propose a port-to-port passage Two short blasts I propose a starboard-to-star- board passage Three short blasts I am operating stern propulsion Five or more short Danger signal blasts One prolonged blast I   am   approaching   a   blind   bend in the channel or leaving a pier The   “bend”   signal   is   the   only   one   made   “blind.” It is answered   by   the   same   signal   by   a   ship   around the bend.   Then,   when   in   sight,   the   danger   signal,   or a signal     of proposal, is sounded, depending on circumstances.    Remember,    under    International    Rules, whistle signals generally are signals of execution or action; under Inland Rules they are signals of intent or proposal. LIGHTS AND SHAPES Navigation    Rules    states   that   all   seagoing   vessels must show  certain  lights  from  sunset  to  sunrise,  whether at anchor    or    under    way,    and    during    daylight    in restricted visibility.  The  basic  purpose  of  these  lights  is to warn    vessels    of    the    presence    of    other    vessels. Lights also  aid  in  determining  the  course  and  aspect  of vessels under way. In some cases, lights indicate a vessel which   is   restricted   in   its   ability   to   maneuver,   either because   of   physical   characteristics   or   because   of   the activity  in  which  it  is  engaged.  The  prescribed  shapes serve the same purpose during the day.
