UNITED STATES Coast GUARD HEADQUARTERS,

Washington, D.C., March 15, 1946. The revised international rules for preventing collisions are statutory and shall be followed by all public and private vessels of the United States upon the high seas and all waters connected therewith navigable by seagoing vessels. However, nothing in the revised international rules shall interfere with the inland rules for preventing collisions or the operation of any special rules made by any local authority relative to the navigation of any harbors, rivers, or inland waters. The inland rules for preventing collisions are statutory and the pilot rules are regulations established by the Commandant, United States Coast Guard, which must be followed by all public and private vessels navigating the harbors, rivers, and inland waters of the United States, except the Great Lakes and their connecting and tributary waters as far east as Montreal and the Red River of the North and rivers emptying into the Gulf of Mexico and their tributaries.

The revised international rules and the inland rules for preventing collisions at sea and on waters connected therewith have been set up in comparison form for easy reference. The regulations containing pilot rules for certain inland waters of the Atlantic and Pacific coasts and of the coast of the Gulf of Mexico follow these statutes. The navigation lights and bells required on motorboats by the act of April 25, 1940, and the regulations promulgated thereunder show the modifications of the pilot rules applicable to motorboats and certain motor vessels. In addition, there has been added the regulations applicable to regattas or marine parades. This publication replaces "Rules to Prevent Collisions of Vessels and Pilot Rules for Certain Inland Waters of the Atlantic and Pacific Coasts and of the Coast of the Gulf of Mexico," dated February 1944.

The Coast Guard is responsible for the enforcement of these rules and regulations. It is the duty of all persons navigating or piloting vessels to familiarize themselves with the requirements of these rules and to conform strictly therewith in the navigation of their vessels. To this end Coast Guard personnel concerned with the administration and enforcement of these rules and regulations will extend every possible assistance.
