If you just want us to nod our heads in agreement about how big of idiots these "other" boaters are, great! No contest on that... however, I think you missed my point... by attempting to fend off several tons of other boats you or your crew could have been seriously injured, and perhaps someone would have written a post about what an idiot you were for trying...

The best advice I can give is to sail like you''re driving a car in New Jersey... expect the other person to make every conceivable wrong move... and then plan accordingly... sure, it would be great if everyone did all the right things all the time, but it''s just not going to happen.
