Re: You are NOT "FISHING"
Sorry. There are some bad copies of the COLREGs online (and cited in this thread) that use "manageability" under the definition of vessels engaged in fishing.
Use the one from the USCG that I posted. I use that one for discussions with US sailors. When I teach in Canada I use the one from the Canadian government that includes Canadian modifications (we do not have Inland Rules).
