H.   Sound Signaling Devices
Class 1 and Class 2 powerboats are required to carry a
hand, mouth or power operated horn or whistle. It must
produce a blast of two-second duration and audible at
a distance of at least one-half (1/2) mile.
Carbon Monoxide!
Carbon monoxide (CO) can be harmful or fatal
if inhaled.  Brain damage or  death can result
from prolonged exposure to carbon monoxide.
Keep exhaust outlets clear of blockage.  Pro-
vide  adequate  ventilation.    Open  hatches,
doors, windows and vents to insure adequate
ventilation.  Close engine compartment doors
and hatches when engine or generator is run-
ning.  Avoid  operating the boat  for extended
periods of time at idle speed, and be sensitive
to weather conditions that may prevent CO from
dissipating into the air.  Do not stand or swim
near engine or generator  exhausts when en-
gines are running.
The following are standard whistle signals:
One Prolonged Blast  Warning Signal
One Short Blast
Two Short Blasts
Three Short Blasts
Pass on my Port Side
Pass on my Starboard Side
Engines in Reverse
Five or More Blasts     Danger Signal

informed of your presence and course.  If you are out
on the water between sunset and sunrise, you are re-
quired to display appropriate navigation lights.
