Thanks for the well wishes, I think it might be the first time
I was nearly run down in my Coronado 25 by a container vessel last year. I was near Bloody Point, making a stbd/stbd passing, when he abruptly turned further to stbd, causing me to dodge. I had a passenger whom I directed to drop to the cockpit sole to make sure that they didn't get pitched overboard while I negotiated the wake.
No comms from them, whatsoever. I dunno, maybe they were the exception and not the rule. I hope.
