Re: who had right away?

GREETINGS EARTHLINGS : If the vessesl is not engaged in fishing, it is deemed a power driven vessel under the rules and a sailing vessel has right of way. If you are unsure of the vessels intentions you sound five or more short blasts on the whishtle to enquire what are his/her intentions to avoid collission (remembering you must avoid collission at all costs) It would be deemed unsatisfactory look out, on the motor vessels behalf . Look out by all available means where not complied with that was bad seamanship on the the power drivern vessel Inform the coast gaurds of the motor vessels lack of compliance to the avoidance of collission at sea regulations (I am sure they will be interesed)
