RE: Trawler vs. Sea Ray Sundancer

Since this has evolved to be more about bridges than Sea Rays, a common courtesy at a bridge is for the slow boats to let the faster boats creep up to the front and go through first. Then the fast boats can pick up speed on the other side without trying to pass the slower ones.
On my many trips between the Florida and the Northeast I would call other boats on the radio while waiting for a bridge to ask their cruising speed, and either move in front or behind them.
