Often it's not so much a question of challenging commercial traffic as being seen and avoided by it. A J/105 was run over at night by a freighter in Long Island Sound a few years ago. If they had seen the sailboat, they would probably have steered around it. Better than a series of Coast Guard Inquiry sessions.
