Classique states that they maintained a course of 080*T & a speed of 7 kts throughout the time covered by the incident.
Seaway states that they maintained course 286*T & a speed of 15.5 kts until slowing near Photo 3 position. There is no evidence in the photos that enables the speed question to be resolved, so I have considered this possibility to establish any effect on the incident. Classique reported that Seaway turned incrementally to starboard thereby causing the close quarters situation & did not alter its speed.
The photos taken by Seaway are shown below. These photos are as presented to Court, not modified by me in any way.

I estimate that looking from Classique, Seaway is about 25* on Classique’s starboard bow.
In the MAR AI 4 report, Seaway reported Classique aprox 30* on my port bow. At the time of this 1st photo, my analysis shows that at this position Seaway was on a course of 287*T, Sky Tower is 30* on the port bow of Seaway, Browns Island beacon is behind the left window frame 25* on the port bow & Classique is aprox 5* on the port bow.
My investigation shows that at no time could Classique have been 30* on the port bow of Seaway. Seaway had a distance of about 2.2 nmiles to travel from the Motuihe position to Browns Island positition of Photo 3. This would at 15.5 kts, take 8.5 minutes.
During this time of 8.5 minutes Classique would at 7 kts travel aprox 1 nmile.
