Rule 35

The following sound signals will be given in restricted visibility:
At not more than two minute intervals.

Power-driven vessel, underway and

making way.

At not more than two minute intervals.

Power-driven vessel, underway but not

making way.

(blast 2 long, I'm waiting too long)

At not more than two minute intervals.

Any of the following:

A sailing vessel.

A vessel fishing.

A vessel not under command.

A vessel restricted in ability to manoeuvre.

A vessel constrained by draught.

A vessel towing.

At not more than two minute intervals.

A vessel under tow, or the last vessel on

a line of vessels under tow.

(long and 3 short, tow line is taut)

At not more than two minute intervals.

A pilot vessel on duty.

At not more than one minute intervals.

A vessel less than 100 metres in length,

at anchor.

At not more than one minute intervals, a

bell at the bow and the gong at the stern.

A vessel greater than 100 metres in length,

at anchor.

At not more than one minute intervals.

A vessel less than 100 metres in length aground.

Sounded after the anchor signal for a

vessel of her size.

An extra signal to give warning of the risk of collision to an approaching vessel, given by a vessel at anchor.

A vessel of less than 12 metres in length is not obliged to make these signals, she only needs to make some efficient sound signal at not more than two minute intervals.

Anyone who does not make a sound signal in reduced visibility would be taking a considerable risk, and considering how easy it is to have a gas powered horn or a trumpet type horn aboard they would be very foolhardy.

Go to test on Rule 35.

Go to sounds test.

Go to Rule 36.
