Give way when hoisting the main?

Courtesy and common sense seem to be the best rules to follow. I have sailed in Maine most of my life, only in the Chesapeake the last couple of years.

Seem to be lots of Asshats in the Chesapeake. Or those who feel "entitled". Lots of nice people too about 80/20. 80 nice 20 Asshat. Given the boating population in the Chesapeake vs Maine I guess I am more likely to run into more of the 20%

Yet I never had these issues in Maine.
