Waters shoreward (seaward) of the boundary line

In filling out the small vessel sea service form, I have a problem.

46 CRF part 7:

I read it, but still not sure if I understand it. I guess I confuse of the boundary line. Where do i find the boundary line for each geographic region? Can someone give me some examples?

If I sail from Annapolis to Norfolk with an over nite stay at Deltaville, how many days are there for each shoreward or seaward days?

If I sail from Norfolk to Cape May and then to Sandy Hook, and onward to LIS

Re: Waters shoreward (seaward) of the boundary line

The boundary line is defined in 46 CFR part 7. Here's a link that gives an overview, and a link to the CFR text.

To quote from that page: "The Boundary Line is sometimes confused with the Demarcation Line, which is the dividing point between domestic rules-of-the-road (Inland Navigating Rules) and the international rules-of-the-road (Convention on the International Regulations for Preventing Collision at Sea, or COLREGS). The Boundary Line and Demarcation Line are different lines for different purposes, although they might coincidentally overlap at places along the coastline."

It sort of unfair to New England boaters, who in some places have to go a lot farther out to get a sea-day outside the line, but these rules weren't really set up for recreational boaters anyway.
