46cfr p7- boundary lines

"90 days of which must be gained seaward of the boundary line."

What does this mean? TIA

Re: 46cfr p7- boundary lines

This is the COLREGS line. Typically it means that you are in open water and are no longer under inland waterways rules, as mentioned. If you look on a chart that contains an inlet to the ocean, you typically see a line that goes across the entrance labeled "COLREGS Demarcation Line". Beyond this line you are to seaward of of the boundary line and you can log that time toward your 90 days required for that part.

Most protected bays and waterways (maybe all, but I'm not sure) are inside of the COLREGS line. Chesapeake, Long Island Sound, Cape Cod, etc. are all inside the COLREGS line.
