Re: You are NOT "FISHING"

As somebody who is approaching Cruising from Dinghy Sailing, I just assume that -everyone- around has never read COLREGS and is out to get me. It certainly seemed that way when I was out trying enjoy my GP14

Many years ago I read all the regulations, then proceeded to consider anything much bigger than me to have the right of way, still here.

I emailed SeaTow and and Sea Tow Foundation - Home Page last week. They emailed me this morning to tell me that they have worked with Google to get that incorrect information off of the web.

Re: You are NOT "FISHING"

Inland rules take effect, when you start seeing nest boxes, instead of crab pots.

"Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end."

Light travels faster than sound. That is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak!.

I would not tell that to crab fisherman in Chesapeake Bay.

Re: You are NOT "FISHING"

Back when I was studying for my license one of my instructors said that although he couldn't pin them down on it, there were indications from the USCG that a trolling vessel could be considered a fishing vessel if it had a fish on.
That sort of even makes sense.
I remember being hailed off St. Augustine inlet one afternoon by a sportfisher who requested that I give him a lot of room because his angler was fighting a large fish and he was maneuvering to keep the best angle/boatspeed on the fish. Happy to oblige, Cap.
