As the Boat coming out of the dock would have thrown their lines and would be restricted in their ability to manovour. I feel the boat in the fairway would be prudent to stand off, wait and watch.

Not unless they are showing day shapes or lights.

In my neck of the woods we wait until a channel is clear before pulling out. Not unlike the parking lot at the neighbourhood grocery store.

The last thing I want is for me, or anyone else, to be stopped with no steerage way in a channel.

AGREE!!!

To suggest that one powerboat can exit a slip directly in front of another just because she's on the starboard side doesn't even make good sense!

The sailboat flapper is an idiot. And you're stink pot friend is an A**hole. It's your job as a good sailor to tell them both that. You don't pull out into traffic, and you don't throw hand signals at people over reactive and shoot off at the mouth, no doubt screaming at another idiot who doesn't know any better. I swear, they swarm together, it's like magnets. BTW, if you have to duck on a boat out of embarrassment, maybe you should re-think the friend bit.

It's unfortunate that 2 big egos can't sit at the same table and figure it out. The amount of ignorance shown on the water always amazes me.

LOL... zzgta they are magnitized... you are right, flapping hand/shooting the bird/yelling is uncalled for. What cracks me up is that these people are going to the water to ostensibly relax!!. its like H20 road rage.

at least i wasnt recognized, i saw the guy this morning... egads....

Barges

Around these parts, we usually stay out of the way of barges.

The comments on one vessel stopping for the other raise some real problems. If the wind and water stayed still, a boat could stop. But in reality there are many situations in which a vessel cannot safely stop. I had an interesting situation the other day. Leaving our little marina there is a very narrow (in places only ten feet wide) unmarked channel in a wider body of water (perhaps a hundred yards across). We were coming out of our marina, under power, when we made a turn and found a power boat who had anchored. Not only was he anchored at the edge of the channel, his anchor line stretched across it. There was certainly no room to pass him, so I stopped. The water and wind kept moving, and I drifted over to where I touched bottom. Fortunately I was able to get off and reverse until I reached a wider part of the channel where I was able to turn around. The powerboater had by this time moved his boat and I was able to get out. To be fair, he probably had no idea the channel was there. But the option of just stopping is not much of an option in close quarters with strong wind or current, and I think the OP's description may very well have been close to that.
