VHF conversation (in Croatian, but I will translate it for you) in Adriatic sea few years ago close to Rijeka (large commercial port):
Large tanker on channel 16: Little boat get lost and clear my way.
33 foot sailboat: I am under sail and have the right of way.
Large tanker: As you wish. I have xxx tons and I can pretend I am braking.

The sailboat took good advise and cleared the way of the comercial ship.
