Thanks. I'm still left wondering why 'Definitions' goes to the trouble of pointing out that "A vessel under way, including a boat racing, is never a continuing obstruction." What would be the difference if it was? Why do we need to distinguish a continuing obstruction from one that isn't?

AIUI anything that isn't subject to a definition in the rules should be used in accordance with an ordinary dictionary.

Typically a continuing obstruction is something like a shoreline or other static object that, well, continues for some distance... In the casebook the only example is a shoreline.

The definition of 'Obstruction' includes "A vessel under way, including a boat racing, is never a continuing obstruction", but there's no definition of 'Continuing' in the rules. What distinguishes a continuing obstruction from one that isn't, and, in particular, what is the above condition trying to say?

Thanks in advance,
