It was reported that on stormy and foggy days, every sound made by the vehicles on the water in seas that require more attention to navigation and living conditions, has a different meaning.
It was stated that the captains of the ship agreed with the sound of a horn, especially in foggy weather, where the viewing angle and distance are very low.
Stating that it is necessary to know the meaning of the gene whistles in the seas in the Northern Hemisphere, where the air temperature is the highest and the life above water is the most intense, Eren Budaklı, the official of the Nautica Goods, said that for a healthy cruise, it is necessary to know the meaning of the sounds of the ship's whistles. Stating that to maintain a healthy life on the water, especially sailors should know the meaning of lights and sounds, Eren Budaklı said that lights and sounds on the water have an international language.
Stating that the safety of the boats is ensured through audible warning systems, Budaklı said, “Seafarers should know the principles of using audible warning equipment in terms of the safety of the navigation during the cruise. The captain must be able to signal when necessary. Sound devices are functional in determining the location of the boat. "Sound signals have certain rules and meanings," he said.
Stating that the vehicles navigating in the sea communicate to prevent conflict and the easiest way of this communication is with the help of the whistle, Eren Budaklı said, “Unlike the land one, every whistle you hear in the sea has a meaning. He explained the horns of the vehicles on the water and what they mean by saying that “The way of whistles and its meaning must be known well, especially to be able to communicate perfectly with the whistle under restricted conditions.”
Here are the meanings of the sounds of ship horns:
Single long whistle (2 minutes intervals) I'm watching with the machine
Double long whistle (with 2 minutes intervals) I am a ship using engine power, my engines stop.
Single long Double short whistle (2 minutes intervals) Watching with the sail
Warning between ships:
One short blast: I take my course to starboard. I turn to starboard.
Two short blasts: I take my course towards the pier, turn to the side of the pier.
Three short whistles: My machine is in astern.
Five short blasts: I do not understand your intention, get clear from me.
The meaning of the horn sounds of above-water vehicles in narrow channels:
Double long + One short whistle: I will pass your starboard.
