Re: Give way when hoisting the main?

And yet once again I am compelled to point out that we are not talking about driving our cars here. There is no such thing as "right of way." In this context, it does not exist. There is a stand-on vessel, and there is a give-way vessel. In any case, both vessels always have equal responsibility to avoid a collision.
