Interesting post indeed. I just checked and it seems that Canada uses the same COLREGs as the rest of the world, and

Quote:
Rule 25 - Sailing Vessels Underway and Vessels Under Oars
...
(e) A vessel proceeding under sail when also being propelled by machinery shall exhibit forward where it can best be seen a conical shape, apex downwards.
Where in the Canadian rules does it state that in the PNW this COLREG may be ignored?

The U.S. Rules have an addendum that reads

Quote:
(e) A vessel proceeding under sail when also being propelled by machinery shall exhibit forward where it can best be seen a conical shape, apex downwards. A vessel of less than 12 meters in length is not required to exhibit this shape, but may do so.
I couldn't find reference if the onshore U.S. rules have also been implemented by the Canadians, but regardless - an vessel of more than 12m length shall display this dayshape when motorsailing.
