That's one of the reasons why I don't race. Racers generally seem to think that ordinary prudent seamanship and the rules of the road don't apply to them because "we're racing".

Courts have ruled differently.

Oh, you've got it quite backwards my friend. I won't waste my breath arguing though. This subject has been to death, with never a resolution.

You be you, and I'll be me.

Re: Collision: Bad News and Good News

Update: After two weeks in the yard, WS is back in, sailed yesterday. The repair is imperceptible. Insurance covered the cost without hassle. The carpenter was expert and thorough. Everything worked out as well as possible.

Awesome news... and just in time for summer. Very glad to hear that, esp the 'no insurance hassle'.

Must feel great!

Re: Collision: Bad News and Good News

My old slip was kind of tight and I was constantly afraid I'd be "that guy" that smacked and damaged a boat across the fairway if I made a slight mistake or the wind got a hold of us. It took a lot of enjoyment out of my boat time since we were never sure how a docking was going to go. We actually did once contact the anchor/bowroller of the powerboat across the way, but did no damage to either boat thankfully.

After 2 seasons I changed marina's to one that while subject to more cross wind, has wide open approaches so, bailing out if things start to unravel is much easier.

Just confessing that sometimes sailboats do hit powerboats.
