Yup, I do it all the time with another sailboat on a conflicting tack. At least close enough that non-sailing passengers think we're going to crash. Usually, the other skipper and I pass a non-plussed waive from our respective side deck perch.

I would never do that with a power boat, especially an LEO (law enforcement officer) that I would have no reason to think would understand.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
