Re: Was the freighter messing with me, or did I mess up?

Sort of an old thread now. We have played in areas in and close to the shipping lanes quite a bit on Superior and Michigan, especially in Whitefish Bay, Straits of Mackinac and Beaver Islands. If there is any question I have always hailed the ship with the VHF and never yet had one treat our little boat with anything but courtesy and professionalism in making ours or their intentions known.
