Signals  Used  to  Attract  Attention,  Continued
Signals Used to Attract Attention Distress Signals International  Rules  and  Inland  Rules  on  signals  to  attract  attention  are almost  identical.  If  it  becomes  necessary  to  attract  the  attention  of another  vessel,  any  vessel  may  make  light  or  sound  signals  that  cannot be  mistaken  for  any  signal  authorized  elsewhere  in  these  rules,  or  may direct  the  beam  of  its  searchlight  in  the  direction  of  the  danger  in  such  a way  as  not  to  embarrass  any  vessel. The  following  paragraph  from  the  International  Rules  is  not  included  in the  Inland  Rules. Any  light  to  attract  the  attention  of  another  vessel  will  be  such  that  it cannot  be  mistaken  for  any  aid  to  navigation.  For  the  purpose  of  this rule,  the  use  of  high-intensity  intermittent  or  revolving  lights,  such  as strobe  lights,  must  be  avoided. There  is  no  basis  in  the  rules  of  the  road  for  the  popular  notion  that  the national  ensign,  hoisted  upside  down,  is  a  recognized  signal  of  distress. No  man-of-war  would  ever  subject  the  colors  to  this  indignity.  But  if you  should  see  a  private  craft  with  the  ensign  hoisted  upside  down,  it  is probably  in  distress.  Signals  covered  by  the  International  Rules  and Inland  Rules  are  as  follows  (fig.  4-21): Special The  following  signals,  although  not  part  of  the  rules  of  the  road,  are Submarine prescribed  for  submerged  submarines  in  emergency  situations  involving Signals rising  to  periscope  depth  or  surfacing: 1.  A  white  or  yellow  smoke  flare  fired  into  the  air  from  a  submarine indicates  the  submarine  is  coming  to  periscope  depth  to  carry  out surfacing  procedures.  Ships  should  clear  the  immediate  vicinity  but should  not  stop  propellers. 2.  A  red  smoke  flare  fired  into  the  air  from  a  submarine  is  a  signal  that the  submarine  is  in  serious  trouble  and  will  surface  immediately  if possible.  Smoke  flares  of  any  color,  fired  into  the  air  at  short  intervals, mean  that  the  submarine  requires  assistance.  All  ships  in  the  area should  clear  the  immediate  vicinity  but  stand  by  to  give  aid. 4-46
