Small doesn’t always have right of way. In any narrow or restricted channel the large vessel with restricted ability to maneuver has right off way over a small craft that can more easily change course or stop. This when a certain well known protester group tried to get in the way of an aircraft carrier with a sail boat, it was their own fault when said carrier rammed their little boat and wrecked it. More than 30 years ago, but the same laws apply. It was in Golden Hate Channel coming into San Francisco Bay just under the great orange Bridge there. To those of us on the ship at the time, it seemed both funny and stupid. Thinking back now, it was just sad. I don’t think anyone was hurt, abs it didn’t even make much in the way of news.
