A beginner’s guide to who has the right of way on the waterways.
This educational (?) post contains 10 images. Click on for more details.
1.) The sailboat on the right HAD the right of way, but somebody here didn’t care!
2.) Hand powered vessels have the right of way, unless…
3.) … a bigger boat doesn’t see it that same way…
4.) Sailboats, and the remains thereof, have the right of way.
Ditto, against 10,000 ton barge.
6.) “Norwegian Breakaway” has right of way to breakaway sailboats who think they have right of way.
7.) Refer to Number 6, above.
8.) Naked, or near naked women have right of way under all circumstances.
9.) See No. 8 above – for passing paddle boarders. Caution should be observed.
Captains with the most beer have the right of way, or so they believe.
