What should the powerboat do when it is about to cross paths with a sailboat under sail?
Can a PWC be used as a motorboat?
What to do if a sailboat under sail crosses paths with a PWC?
A crossing is a journey by boat or ship to a place on the other side of an ocean, river, or lake.
The motorboat should slow down and let the PWC pass because the PWC is smaller. The PWC should speed up and attempt to cross in front of the motorboat. The vessel on the port (left) should give way. The slower-moving vessel should give way.
A motorboat and a PWC are approaching head-on. What action should be taken? Both vessels should turn to starboard (right). Both should maintain course until the last moment.
Paths That Cross: The power-driven vessel is the give-way vessel. The sailing vessel is the stand-on vessel. Overtaking: The vessel that is overtaking another vessel is the give-way vessel, regardless of whether it is a sailing vessel or a power-driven vessel. The vessel being overtaken is always the stand-on vessel.
