Last spring we were bringing BR north from the Caribbean. We stopped one night at Sandy Hook, NJ so we’d be prepared for an early morning departure through NY harbor to the East River and LI Sound. We awoke to dense fog, but needing to make the tide in the River we left at slow speed, radar and AIS working well.
We were passed several times by ferries doing over 30 kts. The visability was under 50 yards. How these guys can do it and keep their licenses is beyond me. It’s an accident waiting to happen.
