Barry Young Misleads Judge Davis About Seaway ll ‘Yawing’
Bolton had been describing to Judge Davis how Seaway had turned incrementally from its earlier course of 286* as from Sth Motuihe & had been on a course of 292* at the taking of Photo 1.

Judge Davis – “Well that’s your evidence isn’t it. Mr Young said that the ‘yawing’ was at 2.4 degrees according to his calculations. What I understand Mr Young’s evidence to have been is that that would be well within the margin that one would consider ‘Yawing’ & he was quite unequivocal that in his view the change in course was only 2.4 degrees?”
Bolton explains – “Yawing is the up & down of a course, averaging out to be a straight course – not an incremental course change in one direction.”
Furthermore Barry Young as a purported expert helping the Court, would have to be deliberately perverting the course of justice –
1: to call ‘Yaw,’ the one directional course change by M Pigneguy  towards the path of Classique. He would know as well as Bolton, that there can be no ‘Yaw’ in absolutely flat conditions – no wind, waves or tidal current.
2: to give Judge Davis an erroneously calculated figure of 2.4 degrees of course change (half the actual amount) which he worked out only from between Photo 1 & 3 which amounted to the last 0.5 nmiles out of more than 2 nmiles from Sth Motuihe.
3: to not admit Seaway had turned from 260* before Sth Motuihe to 284* & then 286* according to M Pigneguy’s evidence as it began heading towards Classique positioned near Browns Island.
4: to not be professionally  honest in his calculations. Barry Young would have to include the degrees Seaway turned once it began heading towards Classique before taking Photo 1.
5: So from 284* to 292*at Photo 1 is 8 degrees & 6 degrees from 286*.  Seaway turned from 292* to 297* within Photos 1 & 3 which is 5 degrees, not Barry Young’s 2.4 degrees.
6: From 284* to 297* is 13 degrees of turning
From 286* to 297* is 11 degrees of turning towards the path of Classique – definitely not ‘Yaw’ which would mean Seaway would have to have swung the other way an equal amount which is nonsense considering ‘yawing’ happens over a short distance  determined mainly by wave or swell height – no wave no ‘Yaw’

Yawing is a dishonest description of the one directional turning made by M Pigneguy towards the path of Classique.
