Safe boating in deep sea shipping navigation areas .: TQ5-1/2015E-PDF

"There is a greater chance of large ships such as tankers and container vessels interacting with small boats and fishing vessels near pilot boarding stations, anchorages, deep sea traffic lanes and off berths within harbours. Large ships do not have brakes and can take up to 2 nautical miles to come to a stop. It is also difficult for a large ship to easily get out of the way of a small boat"--p. [2].
