I have heard that if you have radar and it's not on it will weigh against you if you are involved in an incident. That doesn't answer your question, but there's a lot of gray area in maritime law.
Too true. When I pose that type of question to my buddies at Transport Canada, the response is usually something love "The courts will decide."
