    Re: Explanation by Mr. Stark needed

    Indulging in this slightly-sterile argument as to whether the user of a
    Walker log can protect his log by showing an appropriate towing signal, I
    said there was no appropriate day-signal for a power vessel towing an
    object if the tow was less than 200 metres. All I had to go on at that time
    was a 1972 copy of colregs.
    Doug Royer replied-
    >George,without meaning to be argumenative,check the Colregs as there are
    >proscribed signals for a tow < 200 m in lenght.
    my response-
    Doug, don't apologise to this list for being argumentative. For many of us,
    it's a way of life. What would nav-L be without argument?
    I have checked a more recent edition of colregs (1993), and it's still the
    same, as I read it. The only day-signal required for a power-driven vessel
    is if the tow is greater than 200 metres, when tower and towed must both
    show a diamond. If I misunderstand this, or if the regs have changed since,
    perhaps Doug will put me right.
