a.

On 1 March 1983, the Inland Rules became effective on the
Great Lakes, completing the unification of navigation
rules within the United States. For the first time in
this century, mariners need to know only one set of rules
of the road to ply any waters inside the navigational
lines of demarcation calle COLREGS , Demarcation Lines.
On 1 June 1983, 55 amendments to the International Reg-
ulations for Preventing Collisions. at Sea, 1972 (72
COLREGS) became effeative. These arendments, which were
anticipated when the Inland Rules were written bring the
two sets of Rules closer together. some dirferences do
remain between the Inland and International Rules. The
side-by-side presentation of Rules in this book will
allow the mariner, to determine those differences quickly.

COMDTINST M16672.2A 23 DEC 1983

[merged small][ocr errors]

The primary purpose for revision of COMDTINST M16672.2 1s to incorporate the amendments into 72 COLREGS and delete the italicized material which was superseded on 1 June 1983. This will make the Rules easier to read. Other minor changes to the publication were made. Some of these are the addition of two pictures following Rule 24(d), inclusion of interpretative rules, the insertion of minor amendments to the vessel Bridge-to-Bridge Radiotelephone Regulations, and creation of

legal citations page just before the conversion table at the end of the book.
