1. When navigating in or near restricted visibility, you hear a prolonged blast followed by 3 short blasts. What does this sound signal indicate?


2. Which vessel has the right of way in open water; a sea plane or a power driven vessel? Why?

ok i will give it a shot,,,

Q1: A boat is under tow.

Q2: Power driven vessel because the sea planes are suposed to stay clear of boats? Unless the plane is in the water then it is treated like a boat with regular rules.

1) the long blast is because its foggy out and the 3 short blasts signals that the boat blowing its horn is indicating its changing direction.

2) well it goes in order of how much control a watercraft has. I'm just not sure which one has more control. a plane or a boat :humm

You stated open water. Is it different than near shore and if so where is the line drawn between near shore and open water.

Frank one landed on the Chain last year while a bunch of us were out on the ice - 4 inches. We yelled at him to get the heck off.

This was taken during the 2009 season while we were anchored just off the south wall of the Great Lakes Naval Base while doing some swimming. He did a few landings/take offs in front of us and several other boats. Pretty cool to see.

According to the rules-- a sea plane is the lowest on the pecking order. The power driven vessel has the right of way or is the "stand on" vessel.

A prolonged and 3 shorts IS a manned vessel being towed.

In 2009, around the 4th of July - taste of Chicago. A good sized float plane deck out with Red Bull logos landed not far from where we were fishing. Some where between the r-2 and r-4. They spent about an hour in the water, swimming, jumping off the wings. We didn't get two close but others seemed to boat right up. I think they where giving away stuff.
