You can be RAM by your draft

I'm not familiar with the 360 as a criterion for CBD. The question is can you do a 180 or whatever it takes to avoid collision
from the center of the unfamiliar channel, suddenly, in the dark, with traffic behind you, with adverse wind
? That's when this $#@! happens.
Keep a proper lookout for boats, flotsam, USOs, idiots and drunks and be prepared at all times to take evasive action.
To the original OP, thanks for airing this out.
