Follow the rules and etiquette as stated in all the books, I guess? Give way to vessels restricted in ability to maneuver, stay out of lanes except when crossing perpendicularly, make course changes clearly and well in advance. Is this a trick question?

You know that sailboats don't have to start their motors every time a big ship or barge shows up, right?
