U.S. Coast Guard: Change to Inland Navigation Rules

The U.S. Coast Guard's National Maritime Center has released a bulletin reminding mariners of a change to the Inland Navigation Rules. The Coast Guard has removed the word "danger" from a signal of warning under Rule 34(d) to indicate the signal may be used even when danger is not present. This change aligns the Inland Navigation Rules with the 1972 COLREGS. The complete bulletin is available online.
