Title: Yacht-Fishing Boat Collision?
Post by: Wally15 on October 27, 2018, 06:01:36 AM
Caught a blurb on the news this AM (10/27) that some 300'+ yacht hit a fishing boat with 28 aboard near the US-Mexico border in the Pacific. One person hurt. Sounds like one of the San Diego LR boats was involved if carrying 28 fishermen. West coast news is very spotty over here on the east coast.
Any update?

It was the Prowler and some mega yacht. One was badly hurt and a few others injured. Sounds really bad. Hope everyone comes out ok.

Picture from someone on board the prowler. The whole side of the boat is gone.

People will be pissing in cups and someone will loose their license and do time in jail.

The Prowler has a newer young captain.

Not if it happened in Mexican territorial waters.

Just a really tragic situation, one life lost and many others affected. Just reinforces how quickly things can go bad at sea.

The licensed captains are responsible and the USCG can make them take a wiz quiz no mater where it happened.

The Admiralty court was established to handle incidents on the high seas. Someone will be giving blood probably, everything about this sucks.

I have seen the Yacht a while back coming back into SD harbor, it's fantastic it's loaded with a lot of radar on it's mast and has a French A Star Helicopter on board, The Fishing boat I can understand it might of had the radar off or the Capt was on deck helping out. But the Yacht of that size has a Capt and a First officer to take the helm when he is out of the wheel house.
It's going to be interesting to read the CG final report.

What can we take away from this tragedy?  Just my .02 worth.
Another reason to run AIS on your vessel.  Mine will sound an alarm, so will my radar and it will also track vessels.  This kind of accident is disturbing for many reasons, mostly because itís preventable. But Iíd youve ever looked on an AIS tracker like vessel watch there is a mind boggling amount of traffic in and out and around San Diego and L.A. harbors.  Itís actually somewhat amazing to me that there are not more collisions out there.  There are literally hundreds and hundreds of vessels going in every direction at all times of the day and night.

My personal view is I can never have to much safety equipment, I can never be to safe.

Update : Big question is why did it take 2 hours to notify the Coast Guard ?
Nine miles offshore  , those 2 hours were critical to someone with a head injury .
Some of the best hospitals in the world are  a 10 minute helo ride away.........

If it's the CG report your asking about? it will take several months to a year before it shows up.

Thanks Joel but it was Dominick asking.  It will take months to finish the investigation, I know because I was involved in a very large oil spill, not my doing, and had to have several "chats" with the USCG before it was over.

Try being on watch in Port Operations during a collision. Sucks.
