I can help you with part of this.

The "head" is a phrase that refers to a toilet or bathroom on a vessel where the discharge of water would be termed "black water". This refers to sewage rather than "grey water" which is rain etc.

Hope this is some help.

Environmental leaflet

Just found mine in my Dayskipper pack! It's called 'Tide Lines - Environmental Guidance for Boat Users' and details the type of sewage, toxic waste etc. you shouldn't chuck overboard. It also suggests you should bear in mind the lower emissions from a 4-stroke engine when choosing a new outboard!!

Try the RYA website, www.rya.org.uk, to see if they've got an online copy. If that fails give me your fax number, Ade, and I'll send you a copy.

yachtmaster short paper question this year "up to what distance from the shore is it illegal to discharge food waste into the sea" Answer "within 3 miles off the shore (12 miles in the North Sea or English Channel). Do not dump poorly degrading peelings or skins in the sea."
Hope that helps.

Panic seems appropriate.
first thoughts
wear lifejackets, hoist radar reflector, get a position fix so you know where you were before you get lost, find foghorn, sort out passage plan to avoid areas were you might get run down etc etc
-and in the real world be grateful you have got gps onboard! but that may not sit well with whatever the correct answer allegedly is. Must go-plane to catch!

oh found the book here in the drawer- muster crew on deck(not rib orientated that one) with aforementioned lifejackets on listen to port ops channel vhf so you know whats out there keep constant radar watch (if youve got one hmm!) Sound foghorn (the one we looked for earlier) one long blast every two minutes (power) one long two short (sail) Follow contour line in - never found that much good but the yotties love it as an answer for everything- why no mention of gps in the book?-Seems that they have adopted gps for some of the book but not all of it.
What did you do with the apple cores etc ????
