I think that if everybody read the rules and followed them, the whole infinite game of nautical billiards would work.

It would be great to be king (absolute monarch).

Collision regulations and Active Pass.

Typically I leave the centre for large ferries and the car carriers (Princess Superiour) that transit the area. The ferry routes are well marked on CHS 347201. However, if these aren't in the area, it is nice to zoom right through in the centre channel where the flow is more laminar. You can get some whopping great back eddies that can slow you down, if you are outside of the channel.

This.

Everyone creatively determining their great idea is the definition of the problem statement.
