    Strangely, in Rules 11 thru 18, which deal with right-of-way between
    vessels, do NOT mention vessels under oars.  The only mention I can find is
    in Rule 25 which talks about navigation lights.
    In another post on this issue Herbert Prinz says Rules 18 and 25 make rowed
    vessels equivalent to sailboats.  I don't find that when I read these
    rules.  Rule 18 establishes the hierarchy of vessel categories (power,
    sail, fishing, restricted in maneuverability, not under command) where a
    vessel in one category must keep out of the way of vessels in more
    privileged categories; it  does NOT mention vessels under oars.  And, as
    noted above, Rule 25 only pertains to lighting.
    I wonder if an Admiralty Court has ever dealt with right-of-way issues in a
    collision between a rowed vessel and a power or sail boat?
