Very fortunate that the fishing vessel went HARD astern just prior to impact -- this would have ended pretty ugly had he not.
It seems the fishing vessle altered course to starboard right before impact. If they were altering course then there was someone at the helm. Why wouldn't they have just turned to port? Probably misjudged the sailing ship speed (slow), and thought they would pass astern.
