Re: You are NOT "FISHING"

nolatom interpretations are correct.

There is a difference between a fishing boat and a vessel engaged in fishing, just as there is a difference between a sailboat and a sailing vessel.

A vessel engaged in fishing must show shapes.

Even a large troller is not restricted in their ability to maneuver. I have had them give way to me while I was a sailing vessel. One of the skippers came down the dock at Ucluelet to tell me how much he enjoyed seeing us under sail out there.
