I agree with John. Happens quite often in the Chesapeake on summer weekends at the busier locations (Baltimore, Annapolis, Herrington Harbor, etc.) or smaller ports. We do one of three things 1) point the boat into the wind and maintain bare steerage until the situation resolves itself, 2) stand off and circle until the situation resolves itself, 3) max throttle and yell like Rodney Dangerfield. Ok, I never tried the last one, but it's entertaining to watch.

I can't afford to mix it up.
