STELLWAGEN BANK NATIONAL MARINE SANCTUARY The endangered Right Whale is a regular visitor to Stellwagen Bank. The whale is a slow moving animal that is prone to being involved in collisions with vessels. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has designated Cape Cod Bay and the region east of Cape Cod as Critical Habitat for this species, and has identified the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary as an additional area of importance to the Right Whale. Vessel operators should use caution around Right Whales. Intentional close approach to Right Whales is prohibited and may result in a violation of federal or state law. Three federal areas of special concern are: Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary - bounded by: 4245 59N, 7013 01W; 4205 35N, 7002 08W; 4207 44N, 7028 15W; 4232 53N, 7035 52W; and 4239 04N, 7030 11W. Critical Habitat Area/Cape Cod Bay - bounded by: 4204 48N, 7010 00W; 4212 00N, 7015 00W; 4212 00N, 7030 00W; 4146 48N, 7030 00W and on the south and east by the interior shore line of Cape Cod, MA. Critical Habitat Area/Great South Channel - bounded by: 41 40 00N, 69 45 00W; 4100 00N, 69 05 00W; 4138 00N, 68 13 00W; and 4210 00N, 6831 00W. LNM 18/99 (CGD1) WARNING Kill Van Kull Channel and Newark Bay are undergoing long term and extensive dredging. The U. S. Coast Guard has established a Regulated Navigation Area (RNA) 33 CFR 165.165 encompassing the entire dredging area. Many Aids to Navigation will be relocated and/or established to mark the limits of these sites to ensure safe navigation through and around these areas. Mariners are advised to exercise caution while navigating through these areas. For additional information concerning Aids to Navigation, dredging operation and channel restrictions contact Vessel Traffic Service New York via VHF-FM CH 12 or (718) 354-4088. Chart 12333 (CGD1) LNM 29/99 NEW ENGLAND ICE CONDITIONS - CAUTION CONCERNING AIDS The formation of various types of ice along the New England coast and its rivers, and ice movement caused by wind, tides, and currents may result in floating aids to navigation being extinguished, off-station or missing. Fixed aids to navigation may be destroyed and drawbridges rendered inoperative. Icing on buoys may result in their being partially submerged and/or misleading as to color characteristic and numerals may be missing. Sound signals on buoys may be inoperative. Because of ice conditions and without prior notice, certain lighted buoys and sound buoys may be removed from station without replacement, whereas others may be replaced by unlighted buoys. During storms, ice formation at radiobeacon stations may reduce the strength, range and operation of the radiobeacons. Mariners are cautioned to exercise discretion in using aids to navigation in areas where ice conditions are known to prevail. LNM 02/00 (CGD1) FOG DETECTOR DISCREPANCIES The Coast Guard has discovered that certain models of fog detectors may not activate the sound signal if a failure of the fog detector occurs. Below is a list of navigational lights in the First Coast Guard District equipped with the model type under evaluation. Mariners are urged to exercise caution and report any sound signal discrepancies to the nearest Coast Guard unit.

On average, the questionnaire takes 30 minutes to complete. The process is designed to help Coast Guard program managers determine the types of visual, auditory and electronic navigation aids that are necessary today and in the future. User input and feedback is a key component for this project. Background information about this project can be found by using the following web address: www.rdc.uscg.mil/rdcpages/research8599.html . The questionnaire web site can be accessed using the following web address: http://atonstudy.msi-ct.com/welcome.htm . Thank you for your participation.
