Rules of the Road Review:
RULE 15 Crossing Situation
(a) When two power-driven vessels are crossing so as to involve risk
of collision, the vessel which has the other on her starboard side shall keep out of the way and shall, if the circumstances permit, avoid crossing ahead of the other vessel.
The "Danger Zone" is a concept implicit in the Navigation Rules and should be firmly understood by every boater. From Chapman, Piloting & Seamanship (available from Rex and Cove Marina stores)
