Re: Stop the horns? Yikes!

Audible signals of intent have great value. They get delivered even when the recipient is looking at another situation or doing something that prevents radio communication. It shouldn't become a "variable" in the regs. Especially for fast vessels hurrying to meet a tight schedule. It is a CYA for the skipper.
