RIB and a Frigate!

CND just dug this very picture out and scanned it for me.

A very good picture!

I remember at the time we were escorting a frigate through a fleet of racing toppers down in Plymouth Sound and it popped up on the horizon, getting closer and closer........

The dinghies did get out of the way pretty quick!!!!

Cracking picture but,........

............just for the sake of argument, did the dinghys need to get out of the way or, could they have stood their ground and made HMS move ? What are the rules of the road concerning this ? As I'm still awaiting my Seaway Guide I can't tell you yet !

This is covered by a special section in the "Rules of the Road". Just look up in the index "big grey boats with guns"!

Local rules in Plymouth, IIRC, allow designated vessels right of way over all others whilst transiting the port. Anyway, a vessel under 20 metres (Topper) should not impede a vessel navigating in a narrow channel (Warship).
If the Toppers got in the way of the Warship I doubt it would be able to stop in time to avert a collision.

Jesus MeMe,
For a guy with 1335 posts on the site one would assume that "common sense" would be the order of the day. If this was a genuine query on your part you REALLY need the marine rules of the road book.

"Did the dinghys need to get out of the way ?" For fecks sake
