Chapter 4 The Nautical Road Introduction In  this  chapter,  you  will  be  introduced  to  the  components  of  the maritime  highway.  Just  as  you  would  travel  along  a  roadway  in  your car  by  referring  to  a  map  and  the  road  signs,  the  high  seas,  coastal approaches,  and  harbors  all  have  unique  signposts  to  help  ships  find their  way. The  Nautical  Road  is  comprised  of  two  separate  areas;  Aids  to Navigation  (ATONs)  and  the  Navigation  Rules.  The  ATONs  are  like the  signposts  on  the  highway  and  the  Navigation  Rules  compare  to  the traffic  laws  that  we  follow. Objectives Completion  of  this  material  will  enable  the  student  to: Identify  buoyage  systems. Recognize  buoy  types  and  state  their  purpose. Compute  the  visibility  of  navigational  lights. Recognize  day  and  range  markers  and  state  their  purpose. State  the  purpose  of  the  rules  of  the  road. Describe  all  steering  and  sailing  rules. List  at  least  four  elements  that  make  up  an  ATON’s  characteristics. Identify  the  following  characteristics  of  ATON: a.  Color b.  Light  rhythm  and  cycle c.  Number State  the  two  factors  that  determine  the  visibility  of  a  lighted  ATON. Identify  the  following  terms  associated  with  light  visibility computations: a.   Horizon   distance d.   Nominal   range b.   Meteorological   visibility e.   Geographic   range c.   Luminous   range f.   Computed   range g.   Computed   visibility 4-1
