Crown Law on behalf of Maritime New Zealand wrote in their Submission 24(a)(ii) …
“That Classique maintained its course & speed because the Appellant anticipated that Seaway would alter its course to port which was in its usual practice in his experience. Mr Bolton asserted that a custom had evolved to allow Maritime rules to be put to one aside and for local sailors to use their own local knowledge of the ferry’s path to navigate the Waitemata Harbour”

The Appellant (Bolton) seeks to respond to the Crown submission
Response 24(a)(ii) The Appellant made no suggestion that “a custom had developed that enabled the Maritime Rules to be put aside & for local sailors to use their own local knowledge of the ferry’s path to navigate round the harbour.” This discussion regarding “custom” is in Trans Page 230 where the Appellant said “ A mariner must also comply with broader obligations to act reasonably & prudently, he may include recognized customs observed by mariners in particular locations & they play an important role ….” In the location of Browns Island it was the customary route of the ferry or its Regular Run which was being discussed & how that is naturally to be considered in navigational Risk Assessment. It is submitted that Maritime New Zealand gave misleading evidence which confused the Judge on matters surrounding basic navigational practice worldwide.
==========================================
Note in addition to Response 24(a)(ii)
For Crown Law to come out with this portrayal of ignorance of a navigator’s risk assessment & risk management is highlighting the error Maritime new Zealand made in disregarding their mandatory obligation to notify TAIC – Transport Accident Investigation Commission & let them deal with this matter but they took advantage of a District Court Judge Davis who expressed several times his lack of Nautical Knowledge.
