50yds, thats fair game for been cut in my book.

If enders aren't marked and visible at night either by reflective tape of lights then there also fair game. Our boat hit a fellow crew members on a shout at 30kts, he asked how his ended faired "match sticks" was the reply.
If I left something in the water and wanted it to be there the next day I would mark it well. I took a load of Hi-vis vests out of the skip for the same lad, lazy sod never put them on his enders though!

Apparently talking to various boat owners in the area none of the potters hank their ropes in the Orkney North isles.
I hit two over a week despite giving them wide berths, both times caught the floating rope around the skeg and came to a fairly sudden stop from full chat.
The first was a surprise, the second I gave an even wider berth and still caught it. After this I gave all pots at least 100yd wide sea room. The b**gers were even using floating rope to boot.
Apart from this it is a great area to cruise and I hope to go back up this year again, we were assumed to be locals simply because they never see anybody bar locals in boats in the area......
In saying that I nearly hit one at full speed a few weeks ago going from Oban to Lochaline at night, on the direct line between Lismore light and Oban. Just missed it and no more as all it was marked with was a black flag, at night, midway across the firth on the ferry route!

They should be using weighted rope, any rope that gets caught in my prop will get cut.
Some lazy gits round here can't be bothered shortening their ropes when moving into shallow water, when the certain shallow water is a bay popular with yachts and visiting boats their asking for trouble.

Most don't use weighted rope but at least around here the hank it up underneath the bouy so as long as you don't actually shave the bouy you won't hit anything.
