How to hail a vessle if from a boat with no name

Hello,

What is the proper way to hail a vessle from an unnamed boat? Say I wanted to communicate my intentions to pass another larger vessle in my unnamed RIB, what would I say?

Also, sometimes I have had to do something like this, if you can't make out their name:

"Tug pushing ahead at marker such and such - This is the white sailing vessel such and such off your starboard bow. Do you prefer a port to port or starboard to starboard pass?"


And hopefully never: Big boat such and such... this is the RIB caught under your port bow...

Just blow the whistle and pass

(c)**** When in sight of one another :

(i)**************** a power-driven vessel intending to overtake another power-driven vessel shall indicate her intention by the following signals on her whistle:

* one short blast to mean "I intend to overtake you on your starboard side"
* two short blasts to mean "I intend to overtake you on your port side".


(ii)************** the power-driven vessel about to be overtaken shall, if in agreement, sound a similar signal.* If in doubt she shall sound the danger signal prescribed in paragraph (d).

INTERSECTION

(a)**** When power-driven vessels are in sight of one another and meeting or crossing at a distance within half a mile of each other, each vessel underway, when maneuvering as authorized or required by these Rules:

(i)**************** shall indicate that maneuver by the following signals on her whistle:
******** one short blast to mean "I intend to leave you on my port side";
******** two short blasts to mean "I intend to leave you on my starboard side";
******** three short blasts to mean "I am operating astern propulsion".

(ii)**************upon hearing the one or two blast signal of the other shall, if in agreement, sound the same whistle signal and take the steps necessary to effect a safe passing.* If, however, from any cause, the vessel doubts the safety of the proposed maneuver, she shall sound the danger signal specified in paragraph (d) of this Rule and each vessel shall take appropriate precautionary action until a safe passing agreement is made.

LIGHTS
(b)**** Any vessel may supplement the whistle signals prescribed in paragraph (a) of this Rule by light signals:

(i)***** these signals shall have the following significance:

* one flash to mean "I intend to leave you on my port side";
* two flashes to mean "I intend to leave you on my starboard side";
* three flashes to mean "I am operating astern propulsion".


(ii)************** the duration of each flash shall be about one second;

(iii)************* the light used for this signal shall, if fitted, be an all-round white or yellow light, visible at a minimum range of 2 miles, synchronized with the whistle, and shall comply with the provisions of Annex I to these Rules.
