specifically uncle dave

if you were to run from say LB or Newport or even Dana and had a boat capable of getting you to Oceanside harbor or all the way to mission bay or even san diego what are the rules to passing the 17 mile strech of camp pendlleton? how far offshore do you need to pass that area with out becoming a "threat"? i am getting closer to my bigger boat and with this boat i plan to make these runs.

anyone? beuller beuller :)sphss

Don't worry, if you get too close, they'll let you know:D

Seriously, I'd stay a mile to mile-and-a-half out, and if I saw any large ships, I'd go out outside them so as to not get in the way of an amphibious training excercise. Just plain being in the way can be more hazardous than anything else - remember that those ships can't turn on a dime; it would take several miles to get turned.

We would track all "fast movers" long before the days following 9-11.

There are published NOTAMS (Notice to all mariners) for local operations, I think they are issued by the Coast Guard.
