When Two Boats are Running in the Same Direction and the Vessel Astern Wants to Overtake and Pass a Boat

^ The stand-on boat (the boat being overtaken) must maintain its course and speed.

^ If the give-way boat wishes to pass on the port side, it must signal with two short (1 second) blasts.

^ If the give-way boat wishes to pass on the starboard side, it must signal with one short (1 second) blast.

^ To signal that the course ahead is not safe for passing, the stand-on vessel must signal for danger by sounding five or more short, rapid blasts.

^ If you have doubts or there is danger of collision, give five or more short and rapid blasts to signal danger.
