Re: Give way when hoisting the main?

Rules say you are both under power... but I always give wide berth to someone raising or lowering sail. They are restricted in movement in my estimation... I don't EXPECT other sailors or motor-boaters to provide ME the same courtesy though... so I do my best to find a corner, or off channel place to raise sail, so they have to go out of their way for ME to be in THEIR way.
