Where would I find the differences in Rules of the Road for various countries?

There are the ones I have been able to hunt down.

CEVNI (Europe) - http://www.unece.org/trans/doc/final...SC3-115r3e.pdf

Canada - http://laws.justice.gc.ca/PDF/Regula....,_c._1416.pdf

US - Navigation Rules Online

I have not found a page explaining the differences.

How about 'Sailing Directions' for all countries but the USA.
And Coast Pilot for the areas of the USA that you will be in.

Thus for the Great lakes I would want the Sailing directions of the lakes for Canada and Coast Pilot for the lakes for the USA.

The NGA site has pilot books and other publications of interest. I do not see a Great Lakes one.
TinyURL.com - shorten that long URL into a tiny URL

I cannot seem to get a link to Canadian Sailing Directions. Try Googling CHS "Sailing Directions".

You're right there isn't one for the Canadan side of the great lakes...
145 is for the St Lawrence Seaway & Nova Scotia.
Well I would need to down load:
INTERNATIONAL REGULATIONS FOR PREVENTING
COLLISIONS AT SEA, 1972 WITH CANADIAN
MODIFICATIONS

And compare those modifications to ColRegs & USA Inland Rules.

When the boat is in Auto pilot, Rule 5 lets me ____________.

1. Go get a cup of coffee
2. Do maintenance in the engine room
3. Catch up on my reading
4. Allows me to be a better lookout

Of course, a lot of people forget that Otto can't keep a lookout, regardless of how well he keeps the boat on course.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
