Good link. I especially like "So, to sum up todayís lesson in physics. Donít play in front of large ships. They are bigger, they are dangerous, and they may never see you."

In some, if not all, parts of the world the ship that is working has right of way. Working boats (especially giant ones like tankers) usually follow are fairly consistant path. It's the legal obligation of the recreational boater to get out of their way and keep the shipping channels clear.
