Re: Boum!!!!

I figured out a long time ago that graveyards are full of people that had the right of way. The Humboldt didn't make any course change until just seconds before the collision even though everyone on deck saw the other ship bearing down on them.
No question the Andrea was on auto pilot with no one paying attention to what was going on, but the Humboldt must share some of the blame in this.
