You win, none of the charter boats that I use for instruction have one. Most are over 12 meters.

When we cross paths I will buy you a Race Rocks Amber, or any other Island beer of your choice.

US Inland

(e) A vessel proceeding under sail when also being propelled by machinery shall exhibit forward where it can best be seen a conical shape, apex downwards. A vessel of less than 12 meters in length is not required to exhibit this shape, but may do so.

Canadian Mods

(f) Notwithstanding paragraph (e), in the Canadian waters of a
roadstead, harbour, river, lake or inland waterway, a vessel of
less than 12 metres in length proceeding under sail when also
being propelled by machinery is not required to exhibit a conical
shape, apex downwards, but may do so.

I defy you to figure out that that one means.

As well, who know how to figure out where the inland rules take effect.
