The rules that follow cover most of the situations you will encounter as a recreational boater.

  • Note that the illustrations are not drawn to scale. The boats are shown closer to each other than they should be when actually encountering another vessel on the water.
  • Be aware that there are exceptions to the rules. For example, if you approach a vessel that has less maneuverability than your vessel, the other vessel will usually be the stand-on vessel.
