Three short blasts means you are operating in reverse. One prolonged blast followed by 3 short blasts means boat under tow in redcued visibility conditions.
The color scheme of a Mooring buoy is white with a horizontal blue stripe. These buoys are for securing boats without an anchor.
A boat driven by power, such as an inboard or outboard motor.
This answer is good! The only reason I typed the internationally recognized term was for testing purposes. The first person who answered was correct.
(b) The term "power driven vessel" means any vessel propelled by machinery.
A Clipper was the fastest of all sailing ships.
For a sailing ships to be faster draught of that ship must be low.
Other fast-sailing ships are:
Modern day sailing is recreational, and harnessing the power of the wind to accelerate and direct a craft in almost any direction can be stimulating and enjoyable (unless you are in Jaws 2, then it is not so much fun).
Not in the least. The starboard navigation light is green and many decks are painted green.
The aft end of a ship, the stern, will usually have a steering gear for each rudder. There will usually be mooring equipment on deck. Many ships have free-fall lifeboat davits mounted on teh stern as well. There will usually be an aft peak ballast tank.
It holds (supports) the sails.
You can also mount navigation systems on it.

Around 100 U.S $$$. I know this because I am a pro sailor who sails daily.
Saltwater is briny, so any ocean-going vessel is said to "sail the deep and briny".
1973, The Beach Boys, album "Holland", actual title = "Sail On, Sailor".
"une crique" is a creek in French.
Pre-history. They think it goes as far back as using a basket or log for a boat and using a woven basket-material for a sail. Anyone who has paddled a boat with a strong wind at their back has realized that with a bit more of something to catch the wind they need not paddle at all.
Being shanghaid, being flogged, being keel-hauled, being starved, dying of scurvy or other ailments, and... the harsh language of their "superior" officers.
It depends on which coast you are starting from.
That would depend on how well they were cared for.
Many of the sailing ships from Europe in the 14th through 18th century were damaged or sunk because of accidents, pirates, and wars. When Spanish ships first sailed the waters of the Caribbean, "shipworms" (teredo boreworms) became a major problem. In the early 1800's, the service life of a wooden warship was between 10 and 15 years.
With proper care (and some replacement of timber), well-built ships can last hundreds of years, as evidenced by the USS Constitution ("Old Ironsides") built in 1797 and still on the Naval Register of the US Navy.
Please say who he is who sailed where to.
The commercial vessel has right of way if conducting fishing or trawling operations. When not fishing or trawling, right of way is awarded as with two power boats.
British luxury passenger liner that sank on April 15, 1912, on route to New York from Southampton, England, on its maiden voyage.
I think your best bet that far North is in Garibaldi Bay which is not too far from you. I live in eugene and plan on taking my sweet bluewater boat out to Newport this year which is closer for me. i suppose if you wanted to come down to Newport you could get some lessons with me but check out garibaldi bay first. have you sailed before? you probably want to do some protected sailing first (lakes, on the Columbia, then in a bay like garibaldi or yaquina) before you get out on the open ocean. the Oregon coast is rough and rugged, cold water, can be quite dangerous! Let me know how i can help you out! You could just goto a sailboat lesson website.
ETA: Great advice from the previous poster (BTW, Do you mean the town of Garibaldi @ Tillamook Bay?) . The Portland/Vancouver area is most likely your very best bet. I have crossed the Interstate bridge and seen literally a couple hundred S/Vs out there. Having a bit of experience on the Oregon/ Washington coast and not knowing yours, I'd look inland before sailing out on the Pacific.
Shanghai itself is a city in China. At one time, sailors were kidnapped & used as slave labor on ships bound for Shanghai.
The Titanic set sail April 10, 1912 from Southampton, England on its maiden voyage to New York.
