Thanks
I am comfortable with my understanding.

Rule 21

"Sidelights" means a green light on the starboard side and a red light on the port side each showing an unbroken light over an arc of the horizon of 112.5 degrees and so fixed as to show the light from right ahead to 22.5 degrees abaft the beam on its respective side. In a vessel of less than 20 meters in length the sidelights may be combined in one lantern carried on the fore and aft centerline of the vessel,



Same situation, you are sailing port tack, broad reach. What action do you take? Why?

Gybe, come to a beam reach on Starboard tack. Sound one blast for a port to port pass.

I want to take " substantial" action to indicate my intent.

I have to say I'm quite impressed with the discussion on here especially when it seems everyone on here is participating in the research. More Questions...More Questions!!! Bring 'em on. This is fun and educational.

Power driven vessel

Great discussion and good references Jack.

Rule 3 states A "power-driven vessel" means any vessel propelled by machinery. Therefore the sailing vessel with sails up, engine running in neutral cannot be a "power-driven" vessel.

Another point in the discussion, the correct name for steaming light is "Masthead light" Rule 21

I can hear it now, "But Judge, I can't be guilty." I was motor sailing along and just before the collision I shifted to neutral and yelled starboard thereby changing me from the give way boat, to the stand on boat.

Rule 16 The Give Way vessel ...shall take early and substantial action to keep well clear.

Once you determine you are the give way vessel, you must keep clear. The Regulations make no mention of changing your status. A Give Way vessel is a Give Way vessel until there in no longer a risk of collision.

Here is a court case in which a finding had to be made. Notice that whether or not the transmission on Triptych was engaged mattered.

The horn might not be necessary, but it is prudent.

In my reading, point 5.3 indicates it did not matter if Triptych was propelled by machinery or not. Barossa, as the overtaking vessel, was required
to keep out of the way until finally past and clear.
