bmh Rules of Road

Every sailor needs to have a thorough understanding of the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea (COLREGS) and should be able to recognize other vessels, interpret their activities and rights of way. This is not always easy, especially in crowded waters or in restricted visibility. These cards show the view forward from the deck of various vessels (power, sailing and fishing) of developing traffic situations at sea. In each case the mariner has to decide the correct course of action to navigate his vessel through the hazard. The reverse of the card gives the proper course and also quotes the relevant collision rule.

bmh IALA Bouyage

All mariners need a comprehensive knowledge of the buoyage rules and should be able to instantly identify a navigation mark and understand its meaning. These Flash Cards show buoys and navigational marks in full color, with the meaning and light characteristics on the reverse.

This set of cards covers IALA (International Association of Lighthouse Authorities) Regions A & B along with Cardinal, Western Rivers and Inter-coastal Waterways marks.

bmh Sound & Light

Sound and light signals are used to communicate a vessels situation or intentions . This pack of cards illustrates the sound and light signals commonly encountered at sea. It covers lights, fog signals, sound signals and distress signals. On the front of the card the signal is illustrated and an explanation is given on the reverse.

bmh lights shapes

Anyone responsible for a vessel at sea must be able to recognize other vessels and quickly interpret their situation and possible intentions, day and night. These flashcards illustrate night lights and day shapes that could commonly be encountered by sailors and professional mariners.

bmh morse code

The Morse Code was developed by Samuel F.B. Morse in 1844. Even after almost 170 years, it is still used today. The code can be sent quickly over the telegraph, and is also useful for emergency signaling (SOS) with a radio, mirror, or flashlight. This card set details all of the morse codes for the alphabet, numbers and additional punctuation symbols.

Signal flags are used to communicate messages visually when other methods of communication are either unavailable or undesirable. These flashcards detail the names and meanings for both International and Naval signal flags. Each flashcard has a picture of a flag of the US Navy or International code on the front. On the reverse side we have listed the signal letter or number, phonetic spelling and the meaning of the signal flag.
