Further analysis of the unfeasible claim made by M Pigneguy, pedantic skipper of Waiheke roll on/roll off ferry, accepted by Maritime New Zealand with alacrity, to wrongfully prosecute Bolton, the innocent skipper of yacht Classique making a peaceful passage to anchor at SW Motuihe.
Deception is blatant when M Pigneguy says he made his blasts “on our ships whistle” – an attempt to deceive which Maritime New Zealand had its attention drawn to but turned a blind eye to regarding its deficiency as to Maritime Collision Regulation compliance.
Appendix 3 of Maritime Rules Part 22 – Collision Prevention, states that a vessel of Seaway’s length must have a certain audibility and frequency target of 1 nautical mile (1850 metres) to be heard above ambient engine noise at the listening post – in this case Classique’s wheelhouse.
As Seaway sped past the stern of Classique, Bolton saw Pigneguy fumbling out of his bridge window, a handheld aerosol hooter which made a couple of feeble sounds in the few seconds Seaway was in that vicinity.
Maritime New Zealand was asked by Bolton to have that hooter tested for compliance. Although it was obviously deficient, it was taken by Ian Howden to the Browns Light area & with another complicit staff member, the hooter was found to be inaudible at a fraction of the required distance.
This unsatisfactory device is intended only for dinghies & small runabouts which are not specified in Appendix 3.
The octave band of a complying ships whistle is according to a vessel’s length to give an indication of size of vessel when not in sight of each other, perhaps in a fog. Compare the deep throated sound of a large ocean going ship with that of smaller coastal vessels.
Seaway’s ships whistle had been inoperable for a considerable period due to water ingress –M Pigneguy apparently had no qualms about failing to disclose that absence of complying sounding equipment for a busy commercial vessel negotiating within harbour limits.
