Re: who had right away?
Interesting post indeed. I just checked and it seems that Canada uses the same COLREGs as the rest of the world, and
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
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.
There is a similar Canadian modification. I cannot bring up my Canadian rules right now. http://laws.justice.gc.ca/PDF/Regula....,_c._1416.pdf
Note I said likely - I have never seen an inverted cone.
