    Tom (and others):
    For starters, you can download a pdf version of the latest COLREGS from the
    CG Web site http://www.uscg.mil/vtm/pages/rules.htm
    Rule 33 requires that vessels over 12m carry a bell and "whistle" (we'd
    probably call it a horn).
    Annex V requires vessels over 12m to carry a set of the Rules.
    A "discharge of oil" plaque in the "machinery space" of a vessel, as well
    as a garbage plaque (which shows which type of garbage can be dischared
    overboard depending on one's distance offshore) is required by US law.
    Unfortunately, I can't quote a CFR for them.  (BTW, these placards are
    required on pretty much all vessels with inboard engines and food
    storage/preparation capabilities regardless of the vessel's length)
