Restricted Visibility
Inland When power-driven vessels are in sight of one another and meeting or crossing at a distance within half a mile of each other, each vessel underway, when maneuvering as authorized or required by the Inland Rules, must indicate that maneuver by the following signals on the whistle: one short blast to mean I INTEND TO LEAVE YOU ON MY PORT SIDE two short blasts to mean I INTEND TO LEAVE YOU ON MY STARBOARD SIDE three short blasts to mean I AM OPERATING ASTERN  PROPULSION. NOTE The International Rules do not specify a distance  for  sounding  signals. The International Rules read I AM, and the Inland Rules read I INTEND TO. The one- and two-short-blast signals in the Inland Rules signify an intention of passage with one other vessel. Upon hearing the one- or two-blast signal of the other, the vessel must, if in agreement, sound the same whistle signal and take the steps necessary to effect a safe passing. If, however, the vessel doubts the safety of the proposed maneuver, the vessel must sound the danger signal of at least five short, rapid blasts of the whistle.  Each  vessel  will  then  take  appropriate precautionary action until a safe passing agreement is made. A vessel may supplement those signals with light signals. Light  signals  must  have  the  following  significance: one flash to mean I INTEND TO LEAVE YOU ON MY  PORT  SIDE two flashes to mean I INTEND TO LEAVE YOU ON MY STARBOARD SIDE three flashes to mean I AM OPERATING ASTERN PROPULSION. The duration of each flash must be about 1 second, and the light used for this signal, if fitted, must be one all-around white or yellow light visible at a minimum range of 2 miles, synchronized with the whistle, and must comply with the provisions of Annex I to the Inland Rules. NOTE The Inland Rules do not specify an interval between  flashes  or  an  interval  between successive  signals. The  International  Rules  do  not  allow  a yellow light to be used for light signals. The minimum visible range for light is 2 miles  for  Inland  Rules  and  5  miles  for International  Rules. The Inland Rules require that light signals and sound signals be given at the same time (synchronized). When in sight of another, a power-driven vessel intending to overtake another power-driven vessel must indicate its intention by the following signals on the whistle: one  short  blast  to  mean  I  INTEND  TO OVERTAKE YOU ON YOUR STARBOARD SIDE; and   two   short   blasts   to   mean   I   INTEND   TO OVERTAKE  YOU  ON  YOUR  PORT  SIDE. NOTE The   Inland   Rules   require   signals   for overtaking vessels when in sight of another in a narrow channel or fairway. The   International   Rules   require   two prolonged blasts preceding the short blast required by the Inland Rules. In both International and Inland Rules, overtaking signals are signals of intention only and must be answered by the vessel that is being overtaken. The power-driven vessel about to be overtaken will, if in agreement, sound a similar sound signal. If in doubt, the vessel must sound the danger signal of at least five short, rapid blasts. NOTE The Inland Rules require the vessel being overtaken, if it agrees, to answer with a signal similar to the one sounded by the overtaking vessel. The International Rules require the vessel  being  overtaken,  if  it  agrees,  to  sound  one 5-22
