List 3 things typically found on a boat's capacity plate

Boats powered by outboards: the maximum capacity of people in pounds, maximum weight capacity (persons, motor and gear) in pounds, and maximum horsepower capacity.

Boats powered by inboards and stern drives: the maximum capacity of people in pounds and maximum weight capacity (persons and gear). (The Coast Guard Safe Powering Standard does not apply to inboards, stern drives, etc.)

Manually propelled boats: the maximum capacity of people in pounds and maximum weight capacity (persons and gear).

capacity plate on your boat lists the
weight of people, fuel and gear that can be safely carried.

Motor HP max.

Boats less than 20 feet powered with an inboard, outboard, or stern drive engine manufactured after November 1, 1972, must display a capacity plate defining the safe load limits.

Match the hull type to the best description (MATCHING):
Flat bottom hull ---
Round bottom hull ---
Deep-vee hull ---
Cathedral hull ---
Tunnel hull --

--good for cutting through rough water
-- jon boats have this bottom
--sometimes known as a catamaran
--usually have keels for stability
--air pocket produces lift

Flat bottom hull: Jon Boats have this bottom

Round bottom hull: usually have keels for stability (very efficient)

Deep-vee hull: good for cutting through rough water. (Most boats sold today)

Cathedral hull: Air pocket produces lift (multiple hulls joined together)

Tunnel hull: Catamaran (you can look through the hull like a tunnel)

___________________ and must have
the documentation numbers permanently
attached to ______________________.
(FILL IN THE BLANKS)

Match the type of the Marine Sanitation Device (or toilet) with the proper description.
Type 1, 2, 3, Portable:

A) A fully self contained unit that must be taken ashore and emptied
B) A powerful unit that treats sewage, usually on boats over 65’
C) Treats sewage to reduce bacteria for discharge, with restrictions
D) Usually connected to a holding tank for pump-out at a proper facility

Type 1 = C) Treats sewage to reduce bacteria for discharge, with restrictions (less than 65' boats)

Type 2 = B) A powerful unit that treats sewage, usually on boats over 65’

Type 3 = D) Usually connected to a *HOLDING TANK* for pump-out at a proper facility

Portable = A) A fully self contained unit that must be taken ashore and emptied

6

Your state registration numbers and
registration decal are like the “license
plate” on your car and is typically required
for mechanically-powered recreational
boats. (TRUE / FALSE)

True -- most states require a current registration decal immediately after or before the boat numbers on the port side, generally within 6 inches. While most vessels must be registered, some—like canoes, kayaks and small sailboats without an engine, may not have to be registered in your state, but check to be certain. Fees and renewal requirements vary from state to state.

7

What is the helm?

Where the captain/driver controls the boat.

8

What is the transom

The back "butt" of the board. Hull ID number goes there as does the boat name.

9

What the upper edge of a boat called

Gunwales

10

Planing hulls are designed to ride on top of the water and tend to be fast. Displacement hulls tend to push through the water and are typically slower. (TRUE /
FALSE)

True.

11

Boats manufactured after 1972 will most likely have a hull identification number (HIN) engraved on the bow which includes recommended horsepower, length overall and draft. (TRUE / FALSE)

False - most states require a current registration decal immediately after or before the boat numbers on the port side, generally within 6 inches. While most vessels must be registered, some—like canoes, kayaks and small sailboats without an engine, may not have to be registered in your state, but check to be certain. Fees and renewal requirements vary from state to state.

12

After reading the section on garbage overboard, list three reasons why it is never a good idea to toss garbage in the water.

Habitat destruction.
Aesthetic and Economic impacts (ugly)
Human Health and Safety
Wildlife Entanglement

13

What are the two basic categories of hulls?

Planing flat bottom, maybe a shallow V (go faster)
Displacement (usually rounded bottom, handle better in rough water)

14

List four things that are generally true about the placement and appearance of your boat’s registration numbers, letters
and decal:

Boat numbers must be affixed on the forward portion of both the port and starboard side.
--Numbers should be block letters instead of script.
--Numbers need to be at least 3 inches in height.
--The color needs to contrast with the hull color.
--The number needs spaces or hyphens between numerals and letters, for example: ST 1234 AB or ST-1234-AB.

15

Boats 26’ in length or longer must have a garbage placard prominently posted aboard. Regardless of the size of boat you operate, list five items listed on this placard that cannot be thrown in the water where you typically do your boating

Plastic, rags, glass, food, crockery, synthetic ropes, paper, floating materials, fishing gear.

All boats 26 ft or more in length must have garbage and oil discharge placards prominently posted to remind you and your crew what can be thrown overboard and what can’t. The placards must be permanently attached, made of durable material, and at least 5 by 9 inches in size.

16

Almost every area of the country has a specific aquatic nuisance species concern and as boaters we have an important role to play in not transporting these species from one body to another. (TRUE/FALSE)

True. "Sanitize" your boat before going to a new waterway.

17

Explain the purpose of having a “Y” valve as part of marine toilet. (EXPLAIN)

All installed MSDs must be US Coast Guard certified and have a "Y" valve in proper positioning! Type I and II MSDs must have a "Y" valve secured to allow for waste to enter a proper on board holding tank for future drainage at a pump-out station. Type III MSDs will typically have a built in holding tank with no external plumbing and cannot be pumped overboard. Type III MSDs must be pumped ashore at a proper facility.

18

Name at least one aquatic nuisance species you have encountered or may encounter where you typically do your boating. (LIST)

List five places where aquatic nuisance species can hide or hitchhike on a boat and/
or trailer when traveling from one body of water to another. (LIST)

Boats, trailers, waders and other fishing and boating equipment can spread aquatic invasive species from one body of water to another. (Dogs, Clothing, Bilge)

It’s important to remember to always CLEAN, DRAIN and DRY you boat, trailer and equipment before you leave the launch area at the end of the day.
