Re: Recreational Sailboat vs. Tugboat with Barge: Who Has the Right of Way? - See mor
I don't see what is the point. It is obvious that a tugboat with a barge is a vessel “restricted in her ability to maneuver" the same way a trawler with a net out is.
A trawler with its nets out would have to give way tug and barge that were displaying RAM.
They are not the same (Rule 18)
