So I went out for a sail today in Monterey area. Tons of crab pots which although a bit of pain to navigate I just head
for deep water
and they disappear after the 50 fathom mark.
Long story short on the way in an aggressive recreational fisherman came up alongside ranting that I stole his crab pots and crab. Very aggressive, yelling shouting accusatory etc. Tried to talk to him but no doing. He motored off yelling he was gonna call the authorites. I let it go and when slipped he nor any officials were around. But my question is:
What does one do to protect oneself if an altercation occurs. Should I radio
the CG or Harbor to let them know I'm being harrassed by an A-hole or just let it go like I did today?
