The Rules of Part 22 involved :
22.15 – Crossing situation
When 2 power-driven vessels are crossing so as to involve risk of collision, the vessel which has the other on its own starboard side must keep out of the way. The vessel required to keep out of the way must, if the circumstances of the case allow, avoid crossing ahead of the other vessel.
22.16 – Action by give-way vessel
Every vessel which is directed to keep out of the way of another vessel must, so far as possible, take early & substantial action to keep well clear.
22.17 – Action by stand-on vessel
1. If one of two vessels is to keep out of the way, the other must keep its course & speed.
2. As soon as it becomes apparent to the stand-on vessel that the vessel required to giveway is not taking appropriate action in compliance with this Part –
a. it may take action to avoid collision by its maneuver alone; and
b. if it is a power driven vessel in a crossing situation, if the circumstances allow, it must not alter course to port for a vessel on its own port side.
3. When from any cause, the stand-on vessel finds itself so close that collision cannot be avoided by the action of the give-way vessel alone, it must take whatever action will best avoid collision.
4. This rule does not relieve the give-way vessel of its obligation to keep out of the way.
22.40 – Responsibility
1. Nothing in this Part will exonerate any vessel, its owner, master or crew, from the circumstances of any neglect to comply with this Part, or of the neglect of any precaution which may be required by the ordinary practice of seafarers or the special circumstances of the case.
2. In interpreting & complying with these rules, due regard must be given to all dangers of navigation, collision & any special circumstances, including the limitations of the vessels involved, that may make a departure from the rules of the Part necessary to avoid the immediate danger.
The ‘rules of the road’ at sea have a fundamental difference to the rules of the road on land in New Zealand. That is due to part 22.40 & 22.17.3 quoted above. It is as if what is referred to on the road as “Defensive Driving” is made into law. For this reason, if in this incident a collision had occurred, under the Maritime Transport Act section 94, quoted here, blame would be equally shared until proven otherwise & apportioned accordingly.
‘Division of loss’ to continue …
