Bang goes the 'no claims' bonus.

A float tip is pleasing in its appearance and even more pleasing in its disappearance.

@30FTTC06Those whose training courses included recordings of the The Navy Lark, may be?

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

@Pete11 The no claims bonus is small fry. According to how it was armed, I'm thinking a tera-mega fry up!Funny

Good night Vienna

Re: OOOOOOPs again

It makes you think though. Surely both ships have some form of radar so why didn't they see each other? Time for the old "Would you mind blowing into this please?"

Re: OOOOOOPs again

because with ships those size by the time you see it with your eyes it's way too late to realistically do anything about it.
as they say about hovercraft, if you can see something you WILL hit it.

radar is only good if you do something about it.
both ships may have had the attitude of "i have right of way so the other one better move". and by the time both realised that the other wasn't moving then it's too late to do anything to above a collision.

@chenks76 - you may be right about the 'right of way' thinking, but I am under the impression that there are strict rules governing shipping 'priorities'

Only if all parties concerned are in agreement about such protocol. If they're not then the rogue parties will just do as they please.

I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!
