Re: Give way when hoisting the main?

If I'm under power, sure. If I'm sailing and they chose to put up their main in my line of travel then I'm less sure, but it's never come up.

When I put up my main I try to do so out of the way of others. Even in busy Shilshole Marina this is pretty easy to do.
boats that I sail on regularly: Pearson 28-2, Rondar 505, Yankee 30, Blanchard Junior
