After reading some of the posts about night navigation and navigation lights I think there are a few of us that should go to the KFW website and take the boater safty course. The information is free and you can take the course free. Certification will cost though. I have been boating for 30+ years and I learned a few things.

go to

All the rules and more are in the course. Just learn the basics. Take the course, learn the rules. It only costs if you take the test and apply for certification!!!!!

You will even learn that the port side is the left side of your boat facing forward.

One horn blast means I'm passing, you will be on my port side (left), I will be on your starboard side (right).

Five or more blasts of the horn means that I do not understand you or that there is danger present.
