Polaris, If I understand you correctly, you want to turn left in front of a tow to go in a cove. You say (or blow), "see you on two". You will be turning to your port side. You will leave the tow on your starboard side. When he gets to you, you will be in the cove already. You are on his straboard (two whistle) side when he comes by. Two whistles. I'm not sure I understand your confusion.

By the way,the preferred term for calling a vessel would be the upBOUND or downBOUND tow at such and such, vs the upRIVER tow. You will never meet of overtake a BARGE unless it is adrift, in which case you should notify someone there is a problem. You will be dealing with TOWS or other vessels.
