When a powerboat is about to cross paths with a sailboat under sail what should the powerboat do?
The powerboat should pass to the stern of the sailboat to avoid
its wash causing a problem for the sailboat To avoid a collision,
the powerboat should avoid crossing ahead of the
In any encounter between two "vessels," there is a "give-way" vessel and a "stand-to" vessel. The "give-way" vessel is the one that lets the "stand-to" vessel. IOW the "stand-to" vessel has the right-of-way. This is the "pecking order" of vessels: Vessels not under command Vessels restricted in their ability to maneuver Vessels constrained by draft Fishing vessels engaged in fishing, with gear deployed Sailing vessels Power-driven vessels Notice something? As you go down the list…
Answer It just happens. Sometimes I feel it's meant to be that two people cross paths. Sometimes two people seemingly by coincidence cross paths and they end up being the love of each others lives. If it happens to you and you know it's real, hang on and do not take it for granted. It may never happen again. Embrace it and be thankful that you found each other. You are meant to be together…
Technically none of the known planets have orbital paths which cross each other. Up until a few years ago, the answer would have been "Neptune and Pluto," but a) they don't really "cross" except in a two-dimensional projection (they could never collide, and in fact Pluto gets closer to Uranus than it ever can to Neptune) and b) we no longer consider Pluto to be a planet.
If the sailboat has a motor and is using it, it should give way to any only-sail vessel. In general, sailboats have right of way over motorboats. Exceptions are when the other boat or ship is too large to be maneuverable (such as in channels), is having difficulty, or is being overtaken by the sailboat, among others. When two sailboats are on opposite tacks - the boat on starboard tack has the right of way…
A pathway is recommended for pre-k children. This is when the teacher cuts out laminated foot prints and tapes them to the ground in different paths. The children are asked to follow the paths they should be allowed to explore the different movements they can make to follow the paths. They then can make their own paths and follow them. There are different variations of this.
