Thank you for your choice.
When can a navigation rule be overlooked?
A navigation rule can be overlooked if necessary to avoid immediate danger.
What is the only situation during which a boat operator is not required to follow navigation rules?
The ‘Rule of Responsibility’ requires all boat operators to understand and to follow the Navigation Rules at all times. The ONLY exception to following the Navigation Rules is if you MUST break a rule in order to avoid an immediate collision or danger.
What is primary purpose of navigation rules?
The Navigation Rules are much like the rules of the road on the highway. They establish a consistent way to navigate safely and avoid collisions when two boats are crossing paths, are on course to meet head-on, or when one boat wishes to overtake another.
What is the 3 driving situations all boaters encounter on the water?
Some of the most common situations you may encounter are: overtaking, meeting head on, and crossing the bow of another vessel.
In each case, the boat designated as the “give-way” vessel is required to yield to the other boat, while the boat designated as the “stand-on” vessel should maintain its course and speed.
What is the rule when two vessels are on crossing courses?
When two power-driven vessels are meeting on reciprocal or nearly reciprocal courses so as to involve risk of collision each shall alter her course to starboard so that each shall pass on the port side of the other.
What is Rule No 5?
Rule 5 states: Every vessel shall at all times maintain a proper lookout by sight and hearing as well as by all available means .
appropriate to the prevailing circumstances and conditions so as to make a full appraisal of the situation and of the risk of collision.
When two vessels are encountering each other they are called what?
Meeting head-on: A vessel operator sees another vessel ahead or nearly ahead. Paths that cross: Two vessels are on crossing paths so as to involve risk of collision.
Overtaking: A vessel is coming upon another vessel from behind or nearly behind the other vessel.
When two vessels are in a crossing situation on the water?
Rules to remember when two vessels meet When two power-driven vessels are in crossing situation on a collision course, give way to the vessel to starboard (right).
The give way vessel must take early and obvious action to avoid a collision by either stopping or altering course to starboard.
What is considered a safe speed when boating?
A safe speed is a speed less than the maximum at which the operator can take proper.
and effective action to avoid collision and stop within a distance appropriate to the prevailing circumstances and conditions.
What is the order of stand-on vessels?
As a rule of thumb, if one is approached from the stern or port side then one is the stand-on vessel.
If one is approached from the starboard side, then one is the give-way vessel.
Which vessel has priority over the others?
Power-driven vessels must keep out of the way of any vessel that is not under command.
Non-powered craft including sailboats, canoes, paddleboats, sailboards .
and racing shells generally have the right-of-way over power-driven pleasure craft.
What are the effects of drinking a small amount of alcohol while operating a vessel?
Alcohol affects judgment, vision, balance and coordination.
These impairments increase the likelihood of accidents afloat for both passengers and boat operators. U.S.
Coast Guard data shows that in boating deaths involving alcohol use, over half the victims capsized their boats and/or fell overboard.
What does 4 blasts of a ship horn mean?
prepares to depart the dock the skipper gives four blasts on the horn to alert local boaters they are getting underway.
What does 5 blasts on a ships horn mean?
Warning. One prolonged blast is a warning signal (for example, used when coming around a blind bend or leaving a dock).
Five (or more) short, rapid blasts signal danger or signal that you do not understand or that you disagree with the other boater’s intentions.
What does 2 long blasts of a ship horn mean?
