the pots in newport thursday were a problem had to run them like a skier to get out CG was out several times across the bar and never saw the boat asked to move them they were still working them on the west side of the bridge damn near smack in the middle of the channel when i left at 5 or so small 14 ft boat on the outgoing ug :help: also had a the crew of a charter fishing right near the bar wave me off like i was to close I was at least 50 yrds from them when crossing the bar you dont allways have more room to give with boats comming and going anyone had this happen before and who would have the right of way I liken it to playing in the freeway and asking everyone to change lanes around you ? I could be wrong
I will try to weed through your responce and hopefully answer your questions.
If the the CG boat did not see them as a hazard then they would not do anything. If they are sport pots they normally pull them and take them over to their docks were you can claim them and recieve soem trainingon where to place your pots!
If the charter vessel waved you off they considered you in a situation that placed them and you in danger. It also sounds to me that you may not have a full understanding of the navigation rules, I could be wrong. Have you attended a boater education class? If you have not this may be a great whay for you to gain a bit more understanding of the conduct of vessels when they are navigating a channel or are in close quarters.
