Two less stinkpots, but not here they are French. You would think that they are so quick to surrender that both boats would have turn around.

The small one was from the Netherlands - the french flag have the same colors, but they're vertical instead of horizontal.
It's still two stinkpotters gone, so it doesn't really matter that much

Thanks Joms, I was going on voices and it sounded French. But you are right on the flag.

Those are just some of the few flags that I really REALLY need to be able to distinguish when sailing in European waters

Yep. Don't matter what flag they fly. Stupid is as stupid does! Why the hell do otherwise intelligent people think that they can intimidate Father Neptune with bigger, more powerful boats? Marblehead Rules! (It’s the waterborne version of the “Golden Rule”: The guy with the most gold makes the rules). It is pretty obvious that the smaller vessel was the “Stand-On” while the bigger vessel was the “Burden”. But because he was bigger, and hence had more gold with which to buy the more expensive lawyer, he’ll prove in a court of law that it was the smaller vessel’s responsibility to avoid the collision at the last second.

Dammit! one of these days I’m gonna put an oar over my shoulder and walk inland till someone asks what the heck that stick’s for, then I’m gonna build my house right there! I’m getting sick of this crap!

POCA-

Actually, both vessels are at fault. The COLREGS clearly state that both vessels have the ultimate responsibility, regardless of who is the burdened vessel, to take whatever actions are necessary to avoid a collision. It is likely that the larger vessel would be found to hold a greater percentage of the blame...but both captains are guilty of not taking action to avoid the collision.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
