Inland International Rule 5
Every vessel shall at all times maintain a proper look-out by sight and hearing as well as by all means appropriate in the prevailing circumstances and conditions so as to make a full appraisal of the situation and of the risk of collision .
The standard International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea would possibly apply to that stretch of water as the Colregs not only apply to all vessels upon the high seas but also to all waters connected therewith navigable by seagoing vessels

Rule 1 part b allows special rules authorized by a proper authority, such as the US where they have separate rules for inland rules, clearly defined on the chart.
However in the absence of any other rules, I would suggest rule 5 stands.

There are IMO rules regarding minimum area of visibility (SOLAS convention) but again, it would depend on the local rules, and the classification society, and registry if these apply in is case.

However the "Ordinary practice of seamen" under rule 2 would suggest a lookout would be prudent.

Well done, that's one very lucky boater. Maybe he'll wear a PFD in future and depend less on luck and your well developed powers of observation.

One risk with incidents like that is trying to establish quickly that there isn't anyone else in the water especially if there are communication issues with the casualty- hypothermia, shock, unconsciousness, language,etc. also easy to forget in the heat of the moment but you'd hate to effect a rescue and learn later there were others involved.

This is a very valid point and I really could not know how many people were in the boat .
I actually expected the worse and thought we will find some dead bodies behind the tug boat .
When I saw the guy I had in mind if there is somebody else in the water than he must be behind the guy I fished out because the ship went against the stream . So who or whatever was in the water drifted straight to the back of the vessel .
After he was in my boat he confirmed that he was alone .
But you are right - this is a terrible feeling to operate at such place with an spinning prop if you cannot see what is under the boat ..

Impressive job skipper! Those barges must have been going pretty slow that he could hang on to the rope on the bow like that at all.

Agree that the master of the tug was negligent in not posting a proper lookout. Not sure who exactly was in the wrong though. The rowboat for "impeding" the tug and tow which could only operate in mid channel or the tug and tow for over-running the rowboat.

Not at all - This picture was taken after the guy was safe and I could stop the vessel .
It was not in motion at this time anymore .
