Hang on, hang on a sec....
That video is doing the rounds of the forums and its not quite as it seems...

Theres also the video of the AIS.

It was inside the suez canal and both ships had pilots aboard.

I havent read the other forums threads because its of little interest to me.. Pilots in taht corrupt of corrupt waterway are little more than criminals and you can't expect a criminal to have much value in safety.

And you are right about Colregs... Colregs dont cover Suez. Da pilots are in charge... So go back to the line about corruption lol

Well, Iv'e been through there and I wouldnt trust them with last weeks newspaper let alone playing with a ship...

BTW they were under control of VTS.

So you want to disclaim fault of both pilots and the VTS?

Great way to run a water filled ditch :)
