Being a live-aboard, I spend most of the holidays on the boat. However, I will be letting Carnival pilot at Christmas. What bell tradition for NYE?

Hadn't heard that one*before... how many times does the youngest ring it in? Might have to add that to the traditions. It's also a polite way to ask all the women their ages.

Sounds like a great tradition except for the asking the ladies part. Could end the year on a very sour note!

Don't have a bell.* No longer required on my-size boat.* But have horns.

Never heard of that one.* We will be aboard for NYE--taking a three day trip with three other couples on their boats.* We are hosting NYE dinner on our boat, though one of the other couples is providing the main dish, PRIME RIB.* Yummy.* if we make it until midnight maybe we will try some bell ringing.* Not sure about asking everyone how old they are, LOL.* We know generally but not exactly.

Who (forty feet and more), at anchor in fog, do you assign to ring*the bell every minute for at least five seconds, particularly all night long?

Vessels 20 meters (66ft) or more are required to carry a bell and a whistle.*

Vessles 100 meters or more must carry a bell, a whistle, and a gong.*** KJ

RE: Work is getting in the way of boating!

Without looking, I'm going to go out on a limb and say I remember it being a 7 1/4" bell above 40 feet and 5" bell under 40? All according to the old rules of course, new ones don't have the same requirement. I do have a copy of the rules aboard as required and a written garbage plan, and the oil plaque. Also required for over 40 feet as I recall.
