Re: Recreational Sailboat vs. Tugboat with Barge: Who Has the Right of Way? - See mor
Humm, stop is not an option. A container ship would take a looooong time to stop or even reducing meaningfully its speed.
I was thinking that, conditions permitting, open sea room, etc, they may stop to render aid, if needed. In a harbor, they would probably just proceed to their intended anchorage.
In any event, stay out of their way unless you want to assume water temperature.
