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.
Hull #68 S2 7.9 on our little landlocked puddle, Lake Wallenpaupack, PA, it's cheap, trailerable, and paid for.
