As a newbie I have a lot to learn, and try to especially learn from others' mistakes. Since I sail on the Delaware River, emergency communications with tugs and tankers is an important skill to have. I know almost nothing about VHF radios, except to keep it on ch 16 to monitor distress calls. If the reports are correct, I now know to also try ch 13 if I need to hail oncoming commercial traffic - although clearly ch 13 did not work for that particular tug.
