There are those out there Who ignore the Regulations, and yes they are laws, because they "know what they are doing". And generally cause chaos on the waters.
Inland Rules of the Road, Are Law you will find them in the Code of Federal Regulations 33.
ColRegs are International law, under the treaties signed by all of the Maritime nations. And the USA and all the other nations have signed and ratified those treaties. The USA is a signatory nation of IMO.
Any Questions?
