Marksoflife, in this case the tug and barge are stand on regardless of all else, He is restricted in munevability due to the channel width within the bay and the barge be pushed or pulled, this particular barge is pretty good size.

I think a lot of problems arises when a skipper says " well the book says " and so " I'm in the right " . A little comon sense and courtesy goes a long way in avoiding a nasty encounter
