wow so you recognize that you and another boat are on a collision course and you try to call out to the driver of the other boat but because youre a bamf coast guard volunteer you refuse to concede the waterway to avoid a collision?

Actually, the slower, less maneuverable boat has the right of way.

this is true, especially when the boat is giving distressed signals. Red Right Return.

I think it goes without saying the biggest fucking boat has right of way. "excuse me, can you get that tanker out of the way of my surfboard?"

it doesnt matter who has the right of way if youre the big boat and the little one obviously doesnt know youre there are you gonna hit it just to be a douchebag?

I would. Maybe even swerve towards it ever so subtly.

There we go...come on...don't look this way...almost...Gotcha!!! Woo hoo! Sweet!!!

Yeah really. How FUCKING BLIND do you have to be to not see a coastguard boat coming at you. Jesus. With a story like this I thought for sure alcohol was involved, but apparently it wasn't and they were just that oblivious.

Well, when you run a red light and get t-boned YOU got hit but it's still your fault.

"the attention was taken off of their original mission which was to save the boater who was presumed to have drown...
in other news a local reporter gets a large settlement from the government...

More manuverable boats are give-way vessels... You should always yield to emergency vessels... Ergo, the little boat fucked up.

It would have been nice if they'd hit a floating mine instead of the boat and then lots of sharks came.

Japanese submarine slammed two torpedoes into our side, Chief. It was comin' back, from the island of Tinian Delady. -Just delivered the bomb; the Hiroshima bomb. Eleven hundred men went into the water. Vessel went down in twelve minutes. Didn't see the first shark for about a half an hour. Tiger. Thirteen footer. You know, you know that when you're in the water, Chief? You tell by lookin' from the dorsal to the tail. Well, we didn't know. `Cause our bomb mission had been so secret, no distress signal had been sent. -Huh uh. They didn't even list us overdue for a week. Very first light, Chief...the sharks come cruisin'. So we formed ourselves into tight groups. You know it's... kinda like `ol' squares in battle like you see on a calendar. -Like the battle of Waterloo. And the idea was, the shark would go for the nearest man and then he'd start poundin' and hollerin' and screamin' and sometimes the shark would go away.... Sometimes he wouldn't go away. Sometimes that shark, he looks right into you. Right into your eyes. You know the thing about a shark, he's got...lifeless eyes, black eyes, like a doll's eye. When he comes at ya, he doesn't seem to be livin'. Until he bites ya and those black eyes roll over white. And then...then you hear that terrible high pitch screamin' and the ocean turns red and in spite of all the poundin' and the hollerin' they all come in and rip you to pieces.

Y'know by the end of that first dawn, we lost a hundred men? I don't know how many sharks, maybe a thousand... I don't know how many men, they averaged six an hour. On Thursday mornin' Chief, I bumped into a friend of mine, Herbie Robinson from Cleveland. Baseball player; bosom's mate. I thought he was asleep...reached over to wake him up. Bobbed up and down in the water, just like a top. Up ended. Well... he'd been bitten in half below the waist. Noon on the 5th day, Mr. Hooper, a Lockheed Ventura saw us, he swung in low and he saw us. He was a young pilot, a lot younger than Mr. Hooper. Anyway, he saw us and come in low. And three hours later a big fat PBY comes down and starts to pick us up. You know that was the time I was most frightened?...Waitin' for my turn. I'll never put on a life jacket again. So, Eleven hundred men went in the water...Three hundred and sixteen men come out. The sharks took the rest. -July 29, 1945.

Right-of-way people piss me off. If something is way fucking bigger than you and it's likely to kill you, you give it the right of way or making fucking sure it's giving you the right of way. How fucking good does it feel to know you were in the right when you're paralyzed and begging ugly sex workers to jerk you off?
10 years ago
Umm, yeah... The big boat did have right of way.
10 years ago
Uh dude... In the water, the bigger, slower, or less manuverable you are, the more rights of way you have.
