Re: who had right away?
Confusing post. Lastly you claim not see anyone in the wheelhouse, but in the body of your post you said he changed direction twice. So what was it here , no one in the wheelhouse and the boat fairy changed the boats course or you couldn't see someone thre.
Not being there and reading your reaction I would agree with tempest your changing course and crossing his. Bow confused him. You should hold your course. If I am crossing, I try and make my intentions obvious to a crossing vessel and unless I will clearly pass safely across his bow, show the other vessel that I am crossing behind him. That gives them peace of mind and unless they put it in reverse.there can be no collision.
T he VHF is NOT to be used to display your anger or use a few choice words. Grow up. If you
Had a problem with him and want to discuss how he was wrong and almost killed you, and you know where he keeps his boat, why don't you go over in person and voice the same words face to face. Tell me how that works out . Another sign of immaturity.
