Re: You are NOT "FISHING"

So, unless we are properly displaying the day shape we are not “engaged in fishing”. If that is the case, if a boater is anchored, but not displaying a black ball, then he is considered as under way (but not under sail) and he must give way if I’m under sail? Who here has a black ball and for those who do, how many display it? I’m beginning to think that Jack is spending way too much time in the protest room as he is getting way too sea lawyerly on us. The main point about the Collregs is for each skipper to understand his rolls and responsibilities in order to avoid collisions and not how best to litigate if one does occur.
