The rules are very clear. I think that this may illustrate the advantage of taking courses from experienced, knowledgeable instructors who can explain the rules.
Hence why the term "right of way" is in quotation marks. These fishermen obviously don't know the rules in these situations. The rules aren't extremely clear.

But sailors are the ones who are faced with having to deal with these guys while under way -- not in courtrooms in front of judges.
