Whether you have hailed or not is theoretically immaterial. However if there is a protest, and it hangs on whether or not you were given room to get round the mark without contact, I imagine having hailed will do no harm at all.

As far as the rules go, if the conditions apply you are exonerated and you don't have to do anything about protesting. But there are a few other factors.

Firstly, another boat has broken a rule, and probably deserves to be penalized, but is very unlikely to take her turns if you don't hail protest.

Secondly, if you later decide it was a dick move and you want to take the other boat to the room, by not hailing protest you've given up that option.

Thirdly, by hailing protest, you're indicating to boats around you that you think another boat broke a rule, and that may deter them from protesting you for the mark touch.
