You’ve been told!
As heard on the VHF radio…
Tug Boat Captain (TBC) to Power Boater (PB): Power Boater… where did you go?
PB: I am well clear of you, Captain.
TBC: Power Boater, I have lost sight of you.
PB: I am about 50 feet off your starboard bow.
TBC: That is exactly the point I am trying to make! I suggest you give greater distance to commercial vessels.
PB: Thank you for the advice, Captain. I will take that under advisement.
Us: You’ve been told! LOL
Not the tug involved in that conversation, but one very similar to it.
