Done the tug thing too, & I feel for you in these days of GPS sailors. Before GPS, at least some out there had a rudimentary knowledge of seamanship. Today ?????????????????????/
Truth be told, I stay out of everyones way, especially the big schooners. When I'm running a commercal vessel, no matter the curcimstance, It will be my fault if anythinng happens. Even if a jetski rams into me full speed from the side. When I'm sailing, I stay WAY out of the way. I actually hate being close enough to wave at anybody. But of course I do wave when we catch eachothers glance because I'm naturaly freindly. If I'm being an A hole it's usually on purpose.
