A Guide to the Collision Avoidance Rules, Seventh Edition by A. N. Cockcroft

By A. N. Cockcroft

A advisor to the Collision Avoidance Rules is the fundamental connection with the secure operation of all vessels at sea. released continually considering 1965, this revered and specialist consultant is the vintage textual content for all who have to essentially and legally comprehend and agree to ‘The Rules’. This 7th variation comprises the complete textual content of the overseas laws for combating Collisions at Sea, with useful dialogue of the results of the principles incorporated along all updates visible through the years, together with the newest amendments which got here into strength in December 2007.

The books units out the ‘COLREGs’ with transparent clarification in their which means, and provides designated examples of ways the principles were utilized in perform by means of seafarers, in addition to excerpts from courtroom judgments to demonstrate how they've been interpreted in perform.

Written for seagoing engineers, navigating officials, senior staff, cadets and people in education, plus send operators, marine attorneys and somebody eager about the secure operation of delivery, this can be a necessary reference at sea and on shore.

  • Includes the whole textual content of the overseas laws for fighting Collisions at Sea, up-to-date in keeping with the December 2007 amendments to the rules.
  • Contains functional recommendation on how the rules will be interpreted and collisions kept away from, with insightful dialogue of the results of key words and court docket interpretations.
  • Covers very important maneuvering info, with diagrams protecting preventing distances, turning circles of ships of varied sort and dimension, and a colour part with examples of ships' lights.

Example text

One vessel was on a voyage from India to eastern Canada and the other was bound for Spain from Brazil. Duty O f look-out The look-out should report any lights, vessels or large floating objects which he sees, and, in low visibility, any fog signals which he hears. However, in crowded waters, he could not be expected to report everything he sees; he must use his discretion and report the lights or objects which are likely to bring risk of collision, especially small craft which may not have been observed from the bridge.

In such cases the condition that the ability to deviate from the course must be severely restricted to justify showing the signals is unlikely to apply. 14 (i) This definition is similar to Rule l(c)(v) of the 1960 Regulations. The term ‘under way’ is sometimes used in a restricted sense as applying to a vessel which is actually moving through the water but this is not the meaning used in the Rules. Rule 35(a) prescribes sound signals for a power-driven vessel making way and Rule 35(b) specifies a different signal for a vessel under way but stopped and making no way through the water.

It could be argued that adverse weather conditions are not really exceptional and that a vessel would not, therefore, be justified in showing not under command signals when unable to manceuvre in rough seas. At the 1972 Conference it was considered that adverse weather conditions seriously affecting a vessel’s ability to manceuvre would be exceptional circumstances. However, the fact that a vessel’s ability to manceuvre is affected by weather conditionsdoes not necessarily mean that she is not under command.
