      One thing that bothered me was that there are Coast Guard rules governing navigation which, if followed, should have avoided this situation.  That said, I don't know if the current rules were in effect at the time, but USCG Rule 14, governing head-on meetings in open water or a narrow channel, requires both vessels to keep starboard, passing on the port of each vessel.

      Admittedly, not an expert here...what think ye?
