It isn't a boundary line persay...It is the line of Demarcation. And you will find every Demarcation line listed in the back of the Rules of the Road Book.
Check out the area you are in and be aware of which side of the Demarcation line you are on. It is best to log crossing of the Demarcation line every time you cross it and then you will remember which Rules you are under.

Here is a Sailboat question that you may enjoy:
A sailing vessel is proceeding along a narrow channel and can safely navigate ONLY inside the channel. The sailing vessel approaches a vessel engaged in fishing. Which statement is TRUE?
1. The fishing vessel must sound the danger signal.
2. The fishing vessel shall not impede the passage of the sailing vessel.
3. Each vessel should move to the edge of the channel on her port side.
4. Both vessels should be displaying the signal for a vessel restricted in her ability to maneuver.

Would a commercial fishing vessel actually be fishing in a narrow channel?
A pleasure boat with a hook out is not a fishing vessel AFAIK from the point of view of colregs, yes?


Call the CC and report them?
It looks like a trick question because none of the numbered answers insure a safe passage.
A call on the VHF would probably be in order to straighten it out.
Option 4 couldn't hurt but isn't really the final solution.

hmmmm....

# 2 is correct..

1.) The Sailing Vessel should stop or proceed dead slow...sound a danger signal. Then signal or radio for a port to port pass and obtain agreement

2.) A Fishing Vessel cannot impede a narrow channel

3.) Each vessel is required to move to the Starboard edge of the channel for a port to port passing

4.) Normal shapes
