NAVIGATION LIGHTS

25.1-1 When carried and exhibited.—Every motorboat in all weathers from sunset to sunrise shall carry and exhibit the following lights when under way, and during such time no other lights which may be mistaken for those prescribed shall be exhibited. No penalty is incurred by motorboats for a failure to carry lights between the hours of sunrise and sunset.

25.1-2 Classes A and 1.-Every motorboat of classes A and 1 shall carry the following lights:

(a) A bright white light aft to show all around the horizon.

(6) A combined lantern in the fore part of the vessel and lower than the white light aft, showing green to starboard and red to port, so fixed as to throw the light from right ahead to 2 points abaft the beam on their respective sides.

25.1-3 Classes 2 and 3.—Every motorboat of classes 2 and 3 shall carry the following lights:

(a) A bright white light in the fore part of the vessel as near the stem as practicable, so constructed as to show an unbroken light over an arc of the horizon of 20 points of the compass, so fixed as to throw the light 10 points on each side of the vessel; namely, from right ahead to 2 points abaft the beam on either side.

(6) A bright white light aft to show all around the horizon and higher than the white light forward.

(c) On the starboard side a green light so constructed as to show an unbroken light over an arc of the horizon of 10 points of the compass, so fixed as to throw the light from right ahead to 2 points abaft the beam on the starboard side. On the port side a red light so constructed as to show an unbroken light over an arc of the horizon of 10 points of the compass, so fixed as to throw the light from right ahead to 2 points abaft the beam on the port side. The said side lights shall be fitted with inboard screens of sufficient length and height or shall be mounted on cabin sides and so set as to prevent these lights from being seen across the bow.

25.1-4 Under sail and machinery.-All motorboats propelled by sail and machinery or by sail alone shall carry and exhibit the following lights:

(a) Motorboats of classes A and 1 when propelled by sail and machinery or by sail alone shall carry the white light prescribed by subsection 25.1-2 (a) but not the combined lantern prescribed by 25.1–2 (6).

(6) Motorboats of classes 2 and 3 when propelled by sail and machinery or by sail alone shall carry the colored side lights prescribed by subsection 25.1-3 (c) but not the white lights prescribed by subsection 25.1-3 (a) and (b).

(c) In addition, motorboats of all classes when so propelled shall carry ready at hand a lantern or flashlight showing a white light which shall be exhibited in sufficient time to avert collision.

25.1-5 Visibility. Every white light prescribed by these regulations shall be of a character as to be visible at a distance of at least 2 miles. Every colored light prescribed by these regulations shall be of such character as to be visible at a distance of at least 1 mile. The word “visible” when applied to lights shall mean visible on a dark night with clear atmosphere.

25.1-6 Approved lights.—Six months after the termination of the Unlimited National Emergency proclaimed by the President May 27, 1941, navigation lights installed, fitted, or replaced on motorboats shall be of an approved type: Provided, That navigation lights installed, fitted, or replaced on a motorboat prior to the termination of the aforesaid period may be continued in service on said motorboat provided they are of such character, and so located, arranged, and illuminated as to comply with the requirements in this part: Provided further, That any such navigation lights temporarily removed and later placed in the position from which removed on any such motorboat shall not be considered as an installation, fitting, or replacement.

25.1-7 Running lights.-The lights provided for in section 3 of the Act of April 25, 1940 (54 Stat. 164, 46 U. S. C. 526b), are running lights for motorboats subject to the provisions of that act in lieu of the lights prescribed, respectively, by Article 2 of the Act approved June 7, 1897 (30 Stat. 96, 33 U. S. C. 172) (covering certain harbors, rivers, and inland waters of the United States); Rule 3 of the act approved February 8, 1895, as amended (28 Stat. 645, as amended, 33 U. S. C. 252), (covering the Great Lakes and their connecting and tributary waters); and Rules 3, 5, 6, and 7 of R. S. 4233, as amended (28 Stat. 672, 33 U. S. C. 312, 314-316) (covering western rivers and the Red River of the North). These running lights are required to be carried on all motorboats when under way on navigable waters of the United States, in all weathers, from sunset to sunrise, but not on the high seas. Motorboats, when on the high seas, shall exhibit the lights prescribed by the International Rules of 1890, as amended (26 Stat. 321-325, as amended, 33 U. S. C. 71-82).

25.1-8 Running lights not in conflict with anchor lights and other lights. The provisions of section 3 of the Act of April 25, 1940 (54 Stat. 164, 46 U. S. C. 526b), requiring running lights on motorboats are not in conflict with the provisions of the acts cited in 8 25.1-7, requiring anchor lights and other lights in addition to the running lights on pilot, towing, and fishing vessels. It will be observed that the penalties for violations of existing laws not in conflict wi the Act of April 25, 1940 (54 Stat. 163–167, 46 U. S. C. 526– 526t), remain unchanged.

(4) Class 3. Power-operated, capable of producing a blast of 2 seconds' or more duration and audible for a distance of at least 1 mile.

(5) Commercial fishing motorboats may carry any device specified in this section.

(b). Whistles or other sound-producing mechanical devices which comply with the requirement in effect on April 24, 1940, may be continued in service until 6 months after the termination of the Unlimited National Emergency proclaimed by the President May 27, 1941.

25.2-2 Where not required. The provisions of sections 4 and 5 of the Act of April 25, 1940 (54 Stat. 164, 165, 46 U. S. C. 526c, 526d, 526h), requiring whistles and bells on motorboats do not apply to motorboats propelled by outboard motors while competing in any race previously arranged or announced, nor do they apply to such boats if they are designed and intended solely for racing, while they are engaged in such navigation as is incidental to the tuning up of the boats and engines for the race.

FOG BELL

25.3-1 Where required.—Motorboats shall be provided with a bell which produces, when struck, a clear bell-like tone of full round characteristics, for sounding bell signals according to class as follows:
