Thanks for the well wishes, I think it might be the first time
Well, that is really nice of them, totally the opposite from my experiences of many years in and outside of San Francisco Bay. My definition of who has the right of way is which vessel is bigger than the other. Some time ago after arguing with my Dad about whether or not to start the motor to avoid a tanker
I pushed him aside and started it. Had it not started immediately My wife and I, my two daughters, and my Dad would have been killed. nice to see that wouldn't happen in your area. Keep them comimg!!
