In the end, everyone is equally responsible for avoiding a collision or an allision (moving object hitting a fixed object). I think the fact that radar is specifically mentioned in the US CFR tells me that if it is installed that a lot of weight is given to it as a means of keeping a lookout. If I was involved in a boating accident, I wouldn't depend on my defense being that I didn't know how to read the radar properly.

Just my opinion.
