A1.... a sailboat becomes the give-way vessel when it is overtaking a power boat
A2.... a sailboat is considered a power boat when its engine is on.  Prop does not have to turn.
A3.... PWC's are barred from the Pt. Pleasant and Cape May canals.
A4.... Raritan Bay has no poosted limits. Lakes have several different limits based on date and time of day.

A5..... the green running light on on the starboard(right) side.
A6..... weather usually comes from west to east.
A7..... 5 to 10% of the total weights of both boat & trailer
A8..... No.  A good idea but not required

A9.... 65' or greater.
A10.. term is all vessels... operators are never relieved of the duty to avoid collisions.
A11.. means grave danger or manuevering uncertainty... immediately determine why... is it aimed at you? 
A12.. yes... either a horn or a whistle than can be heard at least a 1/2 mile away
A13.. beats me.   A blue BLINKING light is law enforcement. 

A14... there is NO bilge blower on outboard powered boats.
