Re: Run down by a Tug or Barge

as sailors, it is our responsibility to make sure we stay clear of those vessels and theor tows as they are not as maneuverable as are we. besides, we are supposed to grant 500 ft of safety zone for them under pat-riot act....so, how did they get into a collision, unless they didnt keep good watch.....
