I bet the person at the helm of the container ship was the twin brother of the captain of the Costa Concordia.

Well the captain would have been happy with a harbour pilot on board he was not responsible. But I have no idea weather the two tugs had a line on it or not.

Re: Now THIS is a Collision !

As they say on another site, "That'll buff right out!"

Wiki's take on the Queen of Oak Bay collision seems that it was very a much of a case of "For want of a nail... a kingdom was lost":

<<On June 30, 2005 at about 10:10 in the morning (17:10 UTC), the vessel Queen of Oak Bay, on the Nanaimo to Horseshoe Bay (or Trans-Canada Highway) ferry route, lost power four minutes before she was to dock at the Horseshoe Bay terminal. The vessel became adrift, unable to change speed, but able to steer with the rudders. The horn was blown steadily and an announcement telling passengers to brace for impact was made minutes before the 139 m (456 ft) ship slowly ran into the nearby Sewell's Marina, where she destroyed or damaged 28 pleasure craft and subsequently went aground a short distance from the shore. No casualties or injuries were reported.
...On July 7, 2005, BC Ferries concluded that a missing cotter pin was to blame....>>

Pilot on board or not, the old mans ass is in the wringer.......

Having a pilot on board does not absolve the old man of his responsibility for the safe operation of the vessel....

Re: Now THIS is a Collision !

IslandHopper is correct. I wonder if he left a note under the wind screen wiper?

Re: Now THIS is a Collision !

That is why a lot of Unlimited Masters have their future earnings insured with Lloyds, anyone's screw up effects their ability to earn a living with their license.
