The right of way on the sea depends on local law, international law, relative course and ship characteristics. And its very complicated. And gets exploited a lot.

This is common ship-war stuff. Even navies resort to the "I have the right of way"-spiel to get others to change their course. Someone claims to have the right of way and 'forces' the other party to change course. And if neither does, boom. And then everybody starts crying "it's all your fault" - "no, yours" - "yours" etc...

Cheers,
Sebastian
