Re: Captain Cool almost becomes Captain Crunch....

I think you did the right thing, you just held on a little too long.

You also don't need to wait to the last second and give 5 blasts. You can use your horn to negotiate a port-to-port (1 short) or stbd-to-stbd (2 short) passage well in advance. That would have got the skipper to peek out from behind his jib, even if he didn't know what the horn signal was about.

Hey, at least the guy apologized.
