Re: who had right away?
I've been wondering, and maybe smallboatlover has been to, is what if you are a sailboat with sails down and engine off sitting there during the day. If you are anchored they have to avoid you, but do you have to put up some kind of symbol to show that you are anchored?
What if you are not anchored but are sitting there with zero wind not moving at all, and you look like you are anchored but are not, do they have to avoid you?
Also, since sailboats can't always maintain the same course and speed, how do you handle that? Just do the best you can and you won't ever be at fault?
