LOOK OUT!
From the A.P.C.M. Handbook for Bargemen.

Whether sailing close hauled or running free, LOOK OUT!
Whatever the weather, wherever you be, LOOK OUT!

You cannot avoid a thing you didn't see, so LOOK OUT!
When coming to anchor, or stowing up sail, LOOK OUT!
Or washing the decks with mop and pail, LOOK OUT!
Whatever you're doing never fail to LOOK OUT!
It is easy to hit an object that's there, so LOOK OUT!
But it's just as easy to miss it with care, so LOOK OUT!
Vessels and lights spring from Lord know's where, so LOOK OUT!
