Port or starboard?

Question - with all the roads flooded in places I note that there are quite a few ribs / sibs proceeding up and down places where there is normally a road.

If two boats meet what are the rules? Do they pass as if at sea (port to port) - or do they drive on the left like a car? If two boats had a prang because of any confusion over this it would be interesting to know how an insurance claim would pan out!

A good question..I was amazed at the boat a reporter was in...a70s ski boat with tiller yam..no LJ in sight.

Hrh Charles was the same..the swift water rescue guys were fully kitted up.....

I'd go nautical....port to port....they're in boats after all....

Strictly you are on a highway / byway - not a waterway. What do you do if you meet a vehicle like a land rover / tractor coming the other way?
