1. A close quarters situation was said to have occurred between two power driven vessels – Seaway & Classique
2. Two incident reports on Maritime New Zealand (MNZ) form MAR A14 were lodged – Seaway (Mr Pigneguy) lodged an MAR A14 report & Classique (MrBolton) also lodged an MAR A14 report.
3. Any disagreement between the two reports would appear in broad terms to be not so much in the facts of the close quarters situation occurring (although agreement does not exist on the distance involved) but rather in the causative events, actions or lack of actions that each vessel may or may not have taken that led to the incident.
4. No follow-up appears to have been carried out by MNZ on Mr Bolton’s MAR A14 report & it appears that neither report was notified to TAIC.
5. No formal investigation appears to have been conducted, other than to interview the master & 1 crew of Classique.
6. MNZ took prosecution proceedings against Mr Bolton, charging him with 3 charges under the Maritime Transport Act section 65 – operating Classique in a manner which caused unnecessary danger or risk to any other person or property & failing to observe Part 22.15 & 22.16 of the Maritime Rules.
7. The matter was discussed in the Auckland District Court by Judge Simpson who instructed the parties to meet out of Court for a resolution of the matter.
The parties met at Meredith Connell offices in Auckland following this instruction. Bolton was subsequently advised that the prosecution would proceed.
