Ship collision - that is going to leave a mark
An interesting short video of two freighters colliding in the Strait of Singapore. I know how busy this area is. It seemed that half of the vessels we saw in the Indian Ocean were going to Singapore. I found it interesting at the very beginning of the video there are no warnings being sounded by anyone even though they were so close. Guessing that there was negligent watch-standing on both boats. Also could not figure out where the video was being shot from. Seemed too steady for a helicopter or small plane. Anyone translate the Italian comments?
After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
