Here are the sound signal rules to be followed by vessels in restricted visibility: A power-driven vessel underway must sound one prolonged blast every two minutes. A power-driven vessel underway but stopped and making no way through the water must sound two prolonged blasts every 2 minutes with an interval of about 2 seconds between them. A vessel not under command; a vessel restricted in her ability to maneuver, whether underway or at anchor; a vessel constrained by her draft; a sailing vessel; a vessel engaged in fishing, whether underway or at anchor; or a vessel engaged in towing or pushing another vessel must sound one prolonged blast plus two short blasts every two minutes. A vessel at anchor must ring the bell rapidly for 5 seconds every one minute. A vessel at anchor of 100 meters or more in length is required to ring the bell rapidly for 5 seconds every one minute, and immediately after the ringing of the bell to sound the gong for 5 seconds in the aft part of the vessel.

Video animation to show a low-tech way of transmitting distress: hand-held torch and a horn blown by the user. The sound and light signals are not synchronised: this is likely if different people are using the torch and horn; it will also seem to be the case when observed at a distance. It can be better to concentrate on either the light or the sound signal. Full details: http://sailskills.co.uk/colregs/Sailskills_distress_SOS.html

This fascinating 1943 U.S. Navy training film shows "How to Signal" using flag hoists, semaphore, and blinker to present morse code messages. The film was produced by F.H. Hargove of the Prior Motion Picture Company in New York and supposedly narrated by "Radcliffe Hall" (like a pseudonym for a radio announcer). A review in "Motor Boating" magazine noted that "the film shows pictorially how to learn the codes in the International Flag, Semaphore and Blinker systems of Communication. Expert signal men in the U.S. service serve as instructors and demonstrate the correct methods of using these three methods. It is designed so that the film may be repeated again and again until the student becomes familiar with the signal flags and positions of the semaphore, and the light flashes of the blinker…" Flag semaphore is the telegraphy system conveying information at a distance by means of visual signals with hand-held flags, rods, disks, paddles, or occasionally bare or gloved hands. Information is encoded by the position of the flags; it is read when the flag is in a fixed position. Semaphores were adopted and widely used (with hand-held flags replacing the mechanical arms of shutter semaphores) in the maritime world in the 19th century. It is still used during underway replenishment at sea and is acceptable for emergency communication in daylight or, using lighted wands instead of flags, at night. The use of lights for spelling out messages in Morse code dates back to 1867. With the advent of electric lights in the 1890s, the "blinker light" became an effective tool for signaling. Most widely used by naval ships, blinker lights were essential for merchant ships sailing in wartime convoys and observing radio silence. Blinker has remained a useful backup for merchant vessels, and until the late 1980s deck officers were trained in its use. Usually however, blinker work was done by the Radio Officer. Beginning in the 1930s, both civilian and military pilots were required to be able to use Morse code, both for use with early communications systems and for identification of navigational beacons which transmitted continuous two- or three-letter identifiers in Morse code. Aeronautical charts show the identifier of each navigational aid next to its location on the map. Radio telegraphy using Morse code was vital during World War II, especially in carrying messages between the warships and the naval bases of the belligerents. Long-range ship-to-ship communication was by radio telegraphy, using encrypted messages, because the voice radio systems on ships then were quite limited in both their range and their security. Radiotelegraphy was also extensively used by warplanes, especially by long-range patrol planes that were sent out by those navies to scout for enemy warships, cargo ships, and troop ships. Morse code is a method of transmitting text information as a series of on-off tones, lights, or clicks that can be directly understood by a skilled listener or observer without special equipment. The International Morse Code encodes the ISO basic Latin alphabet, some extra Latin letters, the Arabic numerals and a small set of punctuation and procedural signals (prosigns) as standardized sequences of short and long signals called "dots" and "dashes", or "dits" and "dahs", as in amateur radio practice. Because many non-English natural languages use more than the 26 Roman letters, extensions to the Morse alphabet exist for those languages. Each Morse code symbol represents either a text character (letter or numeral) or a prosign and is represented by a unique sequence of dots and dashes. The duration of a dash is three times the duration of a dot. Each dot or dash is followed by a short silence, equal to the dot duration. The letters of a word are separated by a space equal to three dots (one dash), and the words are separated by a space equal to seven dots. The dot duration is the basic unit of time measurement in code transmission. To increase the speed of the communication, the code was designed so that the length of each character in Morse varies approximately inversely to its frequency of occurrence in English. Thus the most common letter in English, the letter "E", has the shortest code, a single dot.

International maritime signal flags ~ Flag Alphabet The system of international maritime signal flags is one system of flag signals representing individual letters of the alphabet in signals to or from ships. It is a component of the International Code of Signals (ICS). Naval flag signalling undoubtably developed in antiquity in order to coordinate naval action of multiple vessels. In the Peloponnesian War (431 -- 401 BCE) squadrons of Athenian galleys were described by Thucydides as engaging in coordinated maneuvers which would have required some kind of communication; there is no record of how such communication was done but flags would have been the most likely method. Flags have long been used to identify a ship's owner or nationality, or the commander of a squadron. But the use of flags for signalling messages long remained primitive, as indicated by the 1530 instruction that when the Admiral doth doth shote of a pece of Ordnance, and set up his Banner of Council on Starrborde bottocke of his Shippe, everie shipps capten shall with spede go aborde the Admyrall to know his will. Several wars with the Dutch in the 17th century prompted the English to issue instructions for the conduct of particular fleets, such as (in 1673) the Duke of York's "Instructions for the better Ordering of His Majesties Fleet in Sayling". Signals were primitive and rather ad hoc ("As soon as the Admiral shall loose his fore-top and fire a gun..."), and generally a one-way communication system, as only flagships carried a complete set of flags. In 1790 Admiral Lord Howe issued a new signal book for a numerary system using numeral flags to signal a number; the number, not the mast from which the flags flew, indicated the message. Other admirals tried various systems; it was not until 1799 that the Admiralty issued a standardized signal code system for the entire Royal Navy. This was limited to only the signals listed in the Signal-Book. In 1800 Captain Sir Home Popham devised a means of extending this: signals made with a special "Telegraph" flag refererred to a separate dictionary of numbered words and phrases. A similar system was devised by Captain Marryat in 1817 "for the use of vessels employed in the merchant service". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_maritime_signal_flags Semaphore Flags : Semaphore Flags is the system for conveying information at a distance by means of visual signals with hand-held flags, rods, disks, paddles, or occasionally bare or gloved hands.

When in sight of another vessel and no flares or radio are available you can use the signaling flags to call attention to a distress situation. If you require assistance you can use the Code Flag "Victor". Hoist the Code Flag "November" above the Code Flag "Charly" or a black square over a black ball if you are in imminent danger and immediate assistance is required . Code Flag "Whiskey" is used if you require medical assistance. Sound signals made with a whistle or a gong can also be helpful in attracting attention. If no signaling device is available use your arms. Stand facing in the direction of assistance and slowly raise and lower your arms. A combination of flags, audio and arm signals can be used to attract attention.

A distress signal, also known as a distress call, is an internationally recognized means for obtaining help. Distress signals are communicated by transmitting radio signals, displaying a visually observable item or illumination, or making a sound audible from a distance. A distress signal indicates that a person or group of people, ship, aircraft, or other vehicle is threatened by serious and/or imminent danger and requires immediate assistance.:PCG D−3 Use of distress signals in other circumstances may be against local or international law. An urgency signal is available to request assistance in less critical situations. In order for distress signalling to be the most effective, two parameters must be communicated: Alert or notification of a distress in progress Position or location (or localization or pinpointing) of the party in distress. For example, a single aerial flare alerts observers to the existence of a vessel in distress somewhere in the general direction of the flare sighting on the horizon but extinguishes within one minute or less. A hand-held flare burns for three minutes and can be used to localize or pinpoint more precisely the exact location or position of the party in trouble. An EPIRB both notifies or alerts authorities and at the same time provides position indication information. Distress can be indicated by any of the following officially sanctioned methods: • Transmitting a spoken voice Mayday message by radio over very high frequency channel 16 (156.8 MHz) and/or high frequency on 2182 kHz • Transmitting a digital distress signal by activating (or pressing) the distress button (or key) on a marine radio equipped with Digital Selective Calling (DSC) over the VHF (channel 70) and/or HF frequency bands. • Transmitting a digital distress signal by activating (or pressing) the distress button (or key) on an Inmarsat-C satellite internet device • Sending the Morse code group SOS (▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄) by light flashes or sounds • Burning a red flare (either hand-held or aerial parachute flare) • Launching distress rockets • Emitting orange smoke from a canister • Showing flames on the vessel (as from a burning tar barrel, oil barrel, etc.) • Raising and lowering slowly and repeatedly both arms outstretched to each side • Making a continuous sound with any fog-signalling apparatus • Firing a gun or other explosive signal at intervals of about a minute • Flying the international maritime signal flags NC • Displaying a visual signal consisting of a square flag having above or below it a ball or anything resembling a ball (round or circular in appearance) #SOS #VDSs #DistressSignals Don't Forget to Subscribe Us Like Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/MarineOnlineYoutube Follow Twitter: https://twitter.com/MarineOnlineYou Follow Google+ https://plus.google.com/107450234425940445683 Website: https://marineonlineyou.blogspot.com/

Every boat operator must know the rules that apply in the sharing of waterways, in order to safely navigate. When navigating at night or by restricted visibility, the operator must be able to recognize a boat by the color and positioning of its navigation lights to determine what actions to take to avoid a collision. According to the Collision regulations, an operator of a power driven pleasure craft of less than 12 metres in length, and underway, may display, from sunset to sunrise, in addition to sidelights (red -- green), an all-round white light. According to the Collision regulations an operator of a power driven pleasure craft of more than 12 metres in length, and underway, may display, from sunset to sunrise, a masthead light (white) forward, sidelights (red -- green), and a sternlight (white). The operator of a sailing pleasure craft underway shall, from sunset to sunrise, display sidelights (red - green) and a sternlight (white). A vessel engaged in fishing, other than trawling, shall display two all-around lights in a vertical line, the upper being red and the lower white. When making way through the water, it displays the sidelights and a sternlight. A vessel when engaged in trawling, which means dragging a dredge net or other fishing apparatus through the water, shall display two all-round lights in a vertical line, the upper being green and the lower white. When making way through the water, it displays sidelights and a sternlight. Stern view The operator of a sailing pleasure craft of less than 7 metres in length not under power (canoe, kayak), underway, shall from sunset to sunrise, display, if practical, sidelights and a sternlight, but if the operator cannot, he/she must have at hand, a flashlight or lighted lantern emitting a white light which must be lit in enough time to prevent a collision. At anchor, the operator of a pleasure craft shall display, from sunset to sunrise, in the fore part, an all-around white light. A power-driven vessel when towing shall show sidelights, a sternlight, and a towing light in a vertical line above the sternlight, and two masthead lights in a vertical line. When the length of the tow, measuring from the stern of the towing vessel to the after end of the tow exceeds 200 metres, three such lights in a vertical line shall be displayed. Apart from the regular navigation lights, when a boat tows another vessel in distress or in need of assitance for any reason, must take all possible measres to show the relation between the towed vessel and the vessel doing the towing. A vessel towing must try to shine a light on the towing cable to make it as visible as possible, so that other boats do not come into contact with the cable. A vessel or other structure under tow, if it is less than 25 metres wide, shall display one all-around white light. Any government vessel or any vessel that is owned or operated by a harbour, river, county or municipal police force may display a blue flashing light to identify itself as such, in the following cases • when it is providing assistance in any waters to any vessel or other craft; • when it is engaged in law enforcement duties in Canadian waters. A power-driven vessel, when pushing another, must display the sidelights, a sternlight, and two superimposed masthead lights. The vessel being pushed, and not part of a composite unit, must display its sidelights at the bow. When a vessel is pushing another, if both are connected in a rigid, composite unit, they will be regarded as one unit, thus showing the appropriate lights.

Here is a montage of LIRR trains taking various PRR position light signal indications at QUEENS interlocking. In the first clip an outbound train of M7 MU's passes an inbound train of M7's at Floral Park, just as the outbound train knocks the Approach Medium indication on the 42W signal. The 42W is fleeted and changes to a Stop and Proceed. Later that same train takes another Approach Medium on the 22W signal bridge while an inbound diesel hauled train powered by DM30 #510 takes the Clear indication on the 23W. Next an inbound Hempstead train departs the Bellrose station on an Approach indication displayed on the 22W, stopping short of the 12W at Stop. This later changes up Approach Medium in response to the route being lined to the inbound local track past the 2W, displaying Medium Clear. Finally an inbound Main Line MU train passes the 23W signal displaying Clear and makes a high speed diverging movement to the center express track.

As sailors, we carry pyrotechnics on board—per U.S. Coast Guard and SOLAS regulations—and hope we'll never have to use them. In fact, it's illegal to use them, unless you're experiencing an actual emergency or have received permission from the proper local authorities.

A vessel at anchor may in addition to the bell and/or gong, sound one short, one prolonged and one short blast to give warning of her position, and of the possibility of collision, to an approaching vessel. A vessel aground must ring the bell, and if required, sound the gong, and in addition, must ring three separate and distinct strokes on the bell immediately before and after the rapid ringing of the bell. A vessel of less than 12 meters in length is not obliged to give the previously described signals, but if she does not, shall make some other efficient sound signal at intervals of not more than 2 minutes. A pilot vessel when engaged on pilotage duty shall, in addition to the signals prescribed for power-driven vessels, sound an identity signal consisting of four short blasts.

A visual distress signal is any device designed to show that your boat is in distress and help others locate you. A wide variety of signaling devices, both pyrotechnic and non-pyrotechnic, can be carried to meet the requirements of the regulation. Visual distress signals may only be used in emergency situations. Regulations require all recreational boats operating on U.S. coastal waters, including the Great Lakes, the territorial seas and those waters directly connected to the Great Lakes and the territorial seas, up to a point where the waters are less than two miles wide, and boats owned in the United States when operating on the high seas to be equipped with visual distress signals. The regulation states "No person in a boat shall display a visual distress signal on water to which this subpart applies under any circumstances except a situation where assistance is needed because of immediate or potential danger to the persons aboard."

Sound-Signalling Devices or Sound-Signalling Appliance The sound-signalling device or the sound-signalling appliance is intended to signal and alert other boaters of your presence in restricted visibility and/or in emergency situation. Boats under 12 m (39'4") without a fitted sound-signalling appliance must carry a sound-signalling device. Unlike the sound-signalling device, the sound-signalling appliance is an integral part of the boat, is fixed on it and is in good working order. A sound-signalling device can be a pealess safety whistle, a compressed gas horn, an electric horn, a gong or a bell. Whistles with a pea inside are not regulatory as they will not work with water in them. Navigation Lights The navigation lights installed on the pleasure craft show which type of boat is on the water. While navigating at night or by restricted visibility, when you encounter another pleasure craft, the colour of the lights which are visible from the other pleasure craft will help you determine who has priority. You must be aware of the mandatory navigation lights that are required from sunset to sunrise. Navigation at night without navigation lights is dangerous to the other vessels in your immediate area.They must also be used in reduced (poor) visibility (ex: fog). Before heading out, make sure your vessel has the proper navigation lights, and that all lights are in working order. Other vessels depend on your navigation lights to avoid collisions. Navigation lights and shapes vary based on the type and length of your boat and the distance in which navigation lights can be seen is dependent on the size of the vessel. See Rule 22, set out in the Collision Regulations for more information. Radar Reflectors A radar reflector can enhance your safety on the water, but only if it's big enough and well placed on your boat. Reflectors help larger vessels spot smaller boats on their radar screens, which is often the only way to see you. When buying a reflector, there is no substitute for size — so buy the biggest one that is practical for your boat. Height is also very important, so also keep this in mind. Reflectors should be placed above all superstructures and at least 4 m (13'1") above the water if practical. There are all kinds of reflectors of varying quality on the market, so shop carefully before buying. Magnetic compass A magnetic compass will help the operator of a pleasure craft to find directions. The compass is essential to navigation especially when visibility is reduced. A magnetic compass is influenced by the proximity of metallic and/or electrical devices, which could provide inaccurate information. Furthermore, it is important to keep magnetic screwdrivers, key chains, flashlights and any other magnetic materials at a distance from the compass Charts Charts are graphic representations depicting areas of water, depicting the depths, underwater hazards, traffic routes, aids to navigation and adjacent coastal areas. They are intended primarily for mariners to assist navigation; and are published by the Canadian Hydrographic Service, Department of Fisheries and Oceans. They are used as navigational aids. Topographical Maps Topographical Maps are maps of the land area depicting natural and artificial features of the land, including elevation contours, shorelines, rocks, land features above water, and planimetrical

Right here, I have a mirror. You can also use something like a CD or DVD. That will give you enough shine to make a reflection. The way that I use my mirror is to shine onto my hand--I don't know if you can see that shining on my hand--that light is what's going to reflect wherever I aim. If I use my thumb and my forefinger or make a sight right here between my two fingers, I can take that sight and move it to wherever I want to shine. I can make that shine in the direction that I want to signal. If you were signaling an aircraft, you'd want to put the aircraft right here in your V and put the light on both sides of your fingers so you'd get that shine, and you'd be able to signal.

Many kinds of octopus, cuttlefish, and squid are masters of disguise. They conceal themselves using chromatophores—specialized skin cells that hold pigment and reflect light. Cephalopods expand or contract these colored areas, rapidly shifting color or changing skin patterns to blend with their surroundings. A new study shows that even deep-sea dwellers use camouflage to their advantage. Two species—a squid and an octopus—are normally transparent, which makes them invisible to predators that look for silhouettes against surface light. But transparency can't protect them against ocean predators that use their own bioluminescence to illuminate transparent prey. Scientists tested the responses of the two cephalopods to light sources similar to the bioluminescence of deep-sea predators, and observed that the squid and octopus shifted quickly from transparent to opaque in response to this particular spectrum of light. These quick-change artists provide scientists with an important example of camouflage strategies in the ocean depths.

The Radiant Pro 2500 Video Light is a durable and powerful video light, designed to significantly enhance color and light in underwater videos and still images. It offers a variety of advanced features for creative photographers. Featuring an ergonomic design and durable construction, the Radiant Pro 2500 Video Light can be comfortably integrated into any underwater photo system, such as with action cams, amphibious cameras, compact digital housings and more. A battery power indicator light around the power button enables easy monitoring of the battery power. The light makes use of 12 powerful LEDs, which provide an ultra bright, wide and even beam. Color temperature of the beam is warm and assists with producing vivid and colorful videos and still images without having to use any color correction filters. The Radiant Pro 2500 Video Light offers a variety of operation modes, which make the light suitable to light a wide range of classic and creative compositions. Operation modes include wide angle white light (120 degrees), narrow angle white light (15 degrees), red light, Ultra Violet (UV) & Blue light and two flashing modes (white and red) that can serve for signaling / SOS purposes. In the flashing modes the light can provide up to 8 hours of burn time (assuming the batteries are fully charged). A 3-level adjustable power output allows you to control the intensity of the light for various compositions and diving conditions, as well as extending the burn time of the light (the batteries will provide power for a considerably longer time when the light is set at lower intensity settings such as 50% or 25%). Finally, a “memory” function will return the light to the same setting as previously used before the light was last turned off. Depth rated to 100 meters/330 feet, the Radiant Pro 2500 Video Light fulfills the needs of both recreational and technical divers.
