Re: Give way when hoisting the main?
I should be clear...
Motor running (regardless engaged or not because another vessel could not know if it is or not)... then you are a motorboat, and rules apply as if... They don't care if your halyard is stuck or not.
I am saying that is just MY courtesy to avoid someone raising or dropping. I never expect anyone else to do the same.
Heck I should point out I rarely expect motor boaters to follow rules, much less courtesy.
I also remember the fishing vessel discussion, and good luck getting our lake fishermen to respect THAT regulation either. To THEIR minds they own the lake.
The Capri 25, cheap, fast, trailerable, and paid for...
"We're going the wrong way!"
"Yeah but look how fast we're going!"
