What must a Type 3 marine sanitation have when boating on inland waters?

A No Discharge Zone (NDZ) further prohibits the discharge of treated boat sewage. Within NDZ boundaries, vessel operators are required to retain their sewage discharges on-board for disposal at sea (beyond three miles from shore) or onshore at a pumpout facility.

What should you do when operating a boat in bad weather?

To prepare the boat to handle severe weather:

  1. Slow down, but keep enough power to maintain headway and steering.
  2. Close all hatches, windows, and doors to reduce the chance of swamping.
  3. Stow any unnecessary gear.
  4. Turn on your navigation lights.
  5. Keep bilges free of water.

What should you do when your boat is in restricted visibility?

Operating in Restricted Visibility During periods of restricted visibility (such as rain, mist, heavy fog, or hours of darkness), you should slow to minimum speed to give your vessel an opportunity to maneuver should the risk of a collision arise.

What should I do if I hear another boat signal?

As a boater, if you hear another boat’s fog signal you must reduce speed. This also applies when you are in close quarters with another vessel. As well, if you detect a vessel on radar. Speed should be reduced to the minimum that allows you to stay on course.

Why is it hard to see a boat at night?

The most common causes of restricted visibility are: Night. Obviously it’s hard to see a boat at night, and to navigate around obstacles in the dark. At sunrise and sunset it can be difficult to make out shoreline features. Small boats may also be hard to identify.

What to do when there is fog on a boat?

Unless a risk of collision does not exist, an operator who hears the fog signal of another vessel ahead, is in a close-quarters situation with another vessel ahead, or detects the presence of another vessel by radar must reduce speed to the minimum at which the vessel can be kept on course.
