Re: C&D Canal

You don't want to stay in the center if there's a large ship coming upon you. I assume that it doesn't see me and will run right over me rather than cause an environmental hazard potentially running aground to avoid me (which I doubt it will). I have had success in the C&D contacting ships and tugs on ch. 13 and letting them know that I will move to one side or the other. They seemed appreciative. The smaller boats (meaning me) have more leeway on the sides of the canal than the large ships.
