Re: How to report AIS violations?

Call no one,
Sometimes the AIS is not working and it may be the next port that they will have it fixed by Radio Holland or some other Radio shack rep. Expect it not to work sometimes as the shore startion that you get your info from maybe out by reason that is only need to know.

A good outlook uses more than one source of identifing danger.

Sorry, I repeated it backwards, but that wasn't my point. You introduced the discussion over the stand-on rules, which triggered that rules debate.

Re: How to report AIS violations?

I *am* frequently the stand-on vessel when encountering large ships NOT in the Bay. This may be an area not experienced by many who sail mostly in their local area. It is VERY confusing to the ship if I start doing random stuff when they expect me by the COLREGS to keep going. I will call them on the VHF and ask what their plans are. If I can't raise them we assume no one is on the bridge. Then we revert to "Monty Python" colregs, i.e RUN AWAY RUN AWAY!

This is entirely logical. A power boat, even a 900 foot long one, can change course out in the ocean to avoid one sailing vessel. This same ship in the Bay cannot do so without either running aground or hitting some OTHER sailboat. A small fleet of sailboats could effectively bring shipping to a halt in a confined area. In the ocean - not so much.

Re: How to report AIS violations?

I believe this is known as the "Gross Tonnage" rule....

Not written down but then again, who wants to be dead-right ?

Common Sense:
Stay the hell away from something that is huge, can't stop or steer very well in close quarters, may not see you and can surely kill you.

Is there really something to debate here??????
Exactly...

For me, only one rule applies when running a body of water like Delaware Bay:

Size Matters...

As I wrote earlier, if your altering course impacts other traffic who thought you would follow COLREGS correctly, and they then have to alter course as a result, you may well hear a lot of resentment on the VHF.

If the area is a channel which the vessels are restricted by draught or in a narrow channel and you are less than 20 meters, then of course they are stand on. However, Rule 9 does not negate Rule 13, overtaking.

I'm just glad I don't have to deal with ship traffic where I sail now...

In practical terms, you are absolutely right. However, you introduced this line of discussion by using the technical term, stand-on, and declared that recreational traffic is stand-on to commercial. That is not what the COLREGs actually say, as there are only specific commercial vessels that are high up the food chain, or draft issues, or nuances when collision avoidance even goes into affect. Therefore, you got a form over function debate.

I think it makes everyone sharper to actually discuss the rules, despite the futility in this case. No one would stand-on until they were dead right.

Re: How to report AIS violations?

'Trivial" was the wrong word. I should have said "obvious." A small sailboat giving way to an 11,000 tonne freighter is "obvious" and non-debatable. Yet you still insist on debating it. Have fun with that one.
