Very, very well said Sir.

Yes I'll second that, it's always nice to have your passage eased.

"If you are a very competent helm, and you can see that the helm of another vessel is struggling and probably a novice, I believe it’s encumbent on you to use your greater skill to ease the novices passage."

Exactly the situation in which I found myself at Wroxham Bridge yesterday. I was heading downstream, with the current behind me. I find this direction the more tricky transit, as there is a very short distance in which to line up for the bridge.

I had just got nicely lined up and was heading square into the bridge hole when out pops a day boat from the moorings the other side of the bridge, straight into my path, also heading into the bridge hole.

I can imagine the shock in the mind of the other helm, seeing a 30' cruiser heading straight for him. Instead of getting out of the way, or getting himself through the bridge, he just STOPPED!

I went hard astern, took off all forward way and kindly beckoned him through the bridge  Smile  , a signal with which he complied , veerrryyy sloowwwlly, while I performed a balancing act with the throttle.

All part of the richness of life on the Broads.
