2 Kyu Question 22

Three of six questions items found on past 2 kyu written exams for Question 22 are about  sound signals as recorded in the Navigation rules.  The other three question asks about distress signals.

You will want to know the intentions of the captain of a boat when he issues one, two, three, four or five blasts of his horn.whistle.

The chart below is of accepted distress signals.  One of the three question will ask you to identify, from a list, an acceptable signal.  The other two questions are of the ‘inappropriate’ type where you are asked to identify a signal which is not on the list.

Bottom line?  Be very familiar with all the appropriate signals…
