I was in the USN and some Asian maritime cultures believe devils attach themselves to the boat stern, causing problems and attracting more and more devils. The devils hang on the stern making long chains. The only way to dispose of the devils is to cross someone's bow as close as possible. Transferring their devils to the other boat. Entering coastal waters or some ports is a challenge not to hit a fishing boat. We did and rescued the crew. The USN always paid, no matter who was at fault. Your tax dollars at work.
