Fog  Signals Most lighthouses and LANBYS are equipped with fog-signaling  apparatus,  ordinarily  sounded automatically by mechanical and electrical means. For identification  purposes,  each  station  has  its  own assigned  number  of  blasts,  recurring  at  specified intervals.  A  definite  time  is  required  for  each  station  to sound its entire series of blasts; this timing provides another  means  of  identification. The  various  types  of  apparatus  produce corresponding variance of pitch and tone, thus giving your ear a chance to compare the sound of a station with its description in the Light Lists, published by the U.S. Coast Guard. A thorough knowledge of the lights and buoyage system is important because you will be, at one time or another, assigned to lookout duties as a bridge watchstander, or as a boat crew where knowledge of the buoy system is used extensively. SUMMARY The knowledge and experience you acquire as a Seaman today will help you to do whatever job you are assigned to the utmost of your ability in the future. As a Seaman you may he assigned to any of the numerous vessels of the U.S. fleet. Aboard most ships, your job will most likely be different from the job you left. With “hands-on” training indoctrination, you should be performing your assigned duties as well as any  other  Seaman. This chapter has covered many knowledge factors relating to boat handling, including a basic knowledge of the Rules of the Road and the buoy system. You can be assured that your time at sea will be challenging and rewarding. 5-36 REGION A STARBOARD HAND REGION A PORT HAND REGION B STARBOARD HAND REGION B PORT  HAND REGION A PREFERRED CHANNEL STARBOARD REGION A PREFERRED CHANNEL PORT REGION B PREFERRED CHANNEL PORT REGION B PREFERRED CHANNEL STARBOARD SAFE  WATER SPECIAL  MARK
