Re: Ship collision - that is going to leave a mark
Some tine ago a Merchant ship captain explained to me that a loaded ship needs a considerable time to change course. I knew that they need a considerable time to stop, like 10nm if they don't put the engines in reverse but did not have any idea that it was needed a lot of time to change course.
If that was the case it can explain why it seems that nobody is doing anything. Maybe they are (we can see that the "aggressor" has its engines in reverse). Maybe he was also trying to change course.
Somebody knows anything about the needed time for a ship to change course?
