    PWC Encountering PWC

    PWC Encountering PWC

    It is extremely important that a PWC encountering another PWC follow the same navigation rules that apply to motorboats or any other power-driven vessel.

    Most fatalities involving a PWC result from injuries caused by collisions and not from drowning.

    The operator and passengers ride on top of the PWC instead of down inside it. There are no hulls or other enclosures to provide protection from the impact of a collision.

    Due to the lack of protection, PWC collisions are more likely to be deadly for the operator and any passengers.

    Note that the following 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.

    Meeting Head-On: Neither vessel is the stand-on vessel. Both vessels should turn to starboard (the right).

    Paths That Cross: The vessel on the operator’s port (left) side is the give-way vessel. The vessel on the operator’s starboard (right) side is the stand-on vessel.

    Overtaking: The vessel that is overtaking another vessel is the give-way vessel. The vessel being overtaken is the stand-on vessel.

    Extract of the international rules of the road to prevent collisions at sea:

    RULE 13 - Overtaking

    Notwithstanding anything contained in the Rules of this Section any vessel overtaking any other shall keep out of the way of the vessel being overtaken.

    A vessel shall be deemed to be overtaking when coming up with another vessel from a direction more than 22,5 degrees abaft her beam, that is, in such a position with reference to the vessel she is overtaking, that at night she would be able to see only the sternlight of that vessel but neither of her sidelights.

    The stand on vessel must maintain its course and speed while being overtaken.

    The give way vessel must stay clear while overtaking the stand on vessel.

    Both vessels are expected to exhibit common sense.

    The overtaking vessel is the give-way vessel and the vessel being overtaken is the stand-on vessel.

    Once a vessel is greater than or equal to 22.5° abaft the beam of another, it becomes the overtaking vessel thereby becoming the give-way vessel. The overtaking vessel remains the give-way vessel until the overtaking vessel is finally clear of the vessel being overtaken. The principle of the overtaking vessel giving way to the vessel being overtaken remains even if the overtaking vessel is a hampered vessel (e.g. a sailing vessel, fishing vessel, vessel restricted in its ability to manoeuvre, not

    If one boat is wishing to overtake the other it is that boats responsibility to maneuver around the overtaken vessel. Passing on the right/starboard/green side. If you are travelling along and you cross paths with another vessel things are not so simple. Powered vessels give way to sail powered vessels, vessels with limited manoeuvrability or fishing vessels towing gear have right of way in most scenarios. But general rule of thumb is if you can see a green light ( the vessels starboard side ) you are the stand on vessel and have priority. They give way. But it’s a big ocean and if you can get

    In general the overtaken boat has the right of way.

    There are exceptions, for example if an oil tanker is overtaking you in a narrow channel and you are a small vessel you should give way to the much larger ship.

    That has to do with maneuverability, in the small boat you can easily get out of the way compared to a large ship which cannot turn quickly and may have depth constraints.

    Also, commercial fishing boats have the right of way over pleasure boats.

    It is each captains responsibility to avoid a collision if the precise rules of the road can't be followed.

    The overtaking boat must give way. This obligation continues until the overtaking boat is clear ahead - “shows her stern”.

    Rules of the Road : BoatUS Foundation

    The BoatUS Foundation provides this study guide to not only help with passing our free online boating safety course, but to provide a knowledge base for anyone wanting to learn about boating.

    Rules of the Road

    Right of Way Rules

    Whenever you meet another boat, it’s like approaching an unmarked intersection in your car. Knowing a few, simple right of way rules will help you avoid a collision. Just as motorists must know what to do when approaching a four way stop, every crossing situation at sea is like approaching an unmarked intersection.

    Because there are so many different types of boats and styles of boating, it is important to know what to expect when you come upon another vessel.

    "Vessels" are anything that floats on the water that is used, or is capable of being used as a means of transportation on water. A log, a bathtub and many other things could be considered a vessel under the Navigation Rules. The Navigation Rules distinguish one vessel from another by both its design, and by its actions. This section covers maneuvering rules only.

    There are other navigation rules that you are required to know. Sound Rules are covered under the Sound Signaling Equipment section. Light Rules are covered under the Navigation Light Equipment section.

    The Rules of the Road are published by the U. S. Government Printing Office, and are available in any boating supply stores. Every boat owner should have a copy, but they are mandatory to be kept on vessels over 12 meters (39.4 feet) in length.

    The Rules generally used in this course are Inland Rules, unless otherwise noted. There are small but important differences in the Rules depending on where you are operating your boat. It is your responsibility to know the Navigation Rules for your boating area.

    International Rules - Apply to all vessels upon the high seas and in all waters connected to them that are navigable by seagoing vessels.Inland Rules - Apply to all vessels upon the inland waters of the United States, and to vessels of the United States on the Canadian waters of the Great Lakes to the extent that there is no conflict with Canadian law. Certain inland waterways may have specific provisions that apply to certain vessels.Great Lakes - Includes the Great Lakes and their connecting and tributary waters including the Calumet River as far as the Thomas J. O'Brien Lock and Controlling Works (between mile 326 and 327), the Chicago River as far as the east side of the Ashland Avenue Bridge (between mile 321 and 322), and the Saint Lawrence River as far east as the lower exit of Saint Lambert Lock.Western Rivers - Includes the Mississippi River, its tributaries, South Pass, and Southwest Pass, to the navigational demarcation lines dividing the high seas from harbors, rivers, and other inland waters of the United States, and the Port Allen-Morgan City Alternate Route, and that part of the Atchafalaya River above its junction with the Port Allen-Morgan City Alternate Route including the Old River and the Red River.

    Vessel Types

    Power Driven Vessel - Any vessel propelled by machinery. This includes any boat that has an engine. Sailboats are considered powerboats when they are being propelled by a motor - even if the sails are up.Sailing Vessel - Any vessel under sail alone. Remember, if being propelled by a motor, a sailboat is considered to be a powerboat.Vessels Engaged in Fishing - Means any vessel fishing with nets, lines, trawls or other fishing apparatus which restrict maneuverability, but does not include a vessel fishing with trolling lines or other fishing gear which doesn't restrict maneuverability. This means a shrimper out of Galveston is "engaged in fishing" Someone out trolling for stripers in their Grady-White is NOT considered to be engaged in fishing under the Rules.Seaplanes - Are any aircraft designed to operate on the water.Vessels Constrained by Draft - Means that a vessel can't deviate from a course/channel because they might run aground. A freighter in a narrow channel is an example of this. Note: This is for International waters only, not Inland.Vessels Restricted in Their Ability to Maneuver - Means a vessel that can't maneuver as required by the rules because of the size or operation of the vessel. A fishing vessel pulling in nets and a buoy tender placing a buoy are both examples of a vessel restricted in their ability to maneuver.Vessels not under Command - Any vessel that for some exceptional circumstance is unable to maneuver as required by the Rules, and is therefore unable to keep out of the way of another vessel. If Joe boater slips and knocks himself out, and can no longer steer--that's a vessel not under command. If the steering cable goes out, and you can't turn the boat, that's a vessel not under command. If the captain is not paying attention and hits another boat, that's negligence.Underway - Means that you are not anchored, moored, at the dock, or aground. If you are even drifting along, you are underway.Restricted Visibility - Means any condition such as fog, mist, falling snow, rain, or other similar causes that make it difficult to see other vessels. Losing your glasses is NOT restricted visibility.

    Rule, Rule, Rule your Boat

    It may seem as if you can do anything you want while you are on the water (You might also think that it looks as if everyone else is going crazy on the water). Boating on a crowded waterway can be scary! The good news is that there are rules to govern the action of each vessel. The bad news is that many vessel operators do not know the rules!
