Was Barry Young beginning to be affected by some malfunction in his mental capacity at this stage?

It is necessary for me ( Julian Joy) to discuss Seaway’s maneuverability in my investigation because Mr Young’s evidence referred to the inability of Seaway to easily control its course & speed. He said in his Brief of Evidence –
“large, heavy vessels like Seaway can be difficult & slow to turn or stop in an emergency. It is particularly important that smaller vessels, which are obliged under Part 22 to keep out of the way, should give larger vessels a wide berth.”
With 4 engines & propeller control points & joystick control, Seaway is dramatically more maneuverable than Classique. High maneuverability is confirmed by other operators of Seaway & is required for her type of operation in the Tamiki River & the extremely restricted areas she operates in, requiring good handling ability & skill on the part of the operator – she is one of the most maneuverable vessels on the harbour. This is a fundamental error of understanding of Seaway’s capability by Mr Young.
In addition, there is nothing in Part 22.15 that requires a smaller vessel to give a larger vessel a wide berth. In practice, relative maneuverability is a more significant parameter throughout all of the collision rules.
In the photo below, the air space can just be seen, Seaway is a catamaran, a two hulled ship, not a “heavy flat bottomed vessel” as Mr Young stated in his Brief of Evidence.
