Course Outline

Buoys and markers are the “traffic signals” that guide boat operators safely along some waterways. They also identify dangerous or controlled areas and give directions and information. As a recreational boat or a personal watercraft (PWC) operator, you will need to know the lateral navigation markers and non-lateral markers of the U.S. Aids to Navigation System.
