Further analysis of the self incriminating 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
After his nefarious incremental steering towards the path of Classique to prevent her safely passing ahead, M Pigneguy next comes up with another half-baked observation.
At the point Classique crossed Seaway’s bows he said – “a cloud of smoke was seen to come out from the yacht’s exhaust as it accelerated away from us”
Considering M Pigneguy was manufacturing his alleged close quarters with Classique, he probably thought he could further implicate Classique by purposely misconstruing the appearance of Classique’s normal exhaust to impress Judge Davis who has no nautical knowledge.
Maritime New Zealand Ian Howden & Mark Davies, Crown Law were probably also thinking that M Pigneguy could make something of this fabricated point.
Sometimes a diesel engine will emit darkened exhaust when the throttle is opened to increase speed & the engine can’t burn cleanly, the extra fuel being pumped in. If that is going to be the case, there will be seen a clean exhaust prior to the opening of the throttle.
Obviously the observer has to be honest in what he reports but M Pigneguy had no intention to be truthful in his observation. Neither did he consider a range of alternative reasons for what he was seeing.
Although Maritime NZ Ian Howden was given at the initial interview Bolton’s detailed explanation as to what was a normal exhaust for Classique, it made no difference to Ian Howden’s alacrity to proceed unhesitatingly towards prosecution.
Quite simply, Classique runs a large capacity Volvo MD120 & every few years a deposit in the water cooling section, restricts it’s function causing quite a volume of translucent steam to be pumped out with the clear cooling salt water of which there is so much that the engine is still at it’s normal operating temperature. The advantage of allowing this partial restriction is that this large engine has a better chance of reaching operating temperature when running a short distance at low speed in a harbour environment.
Further to M Pigneguy’s discredit, he didn’t divulge that a 3.6 mtr grey inflatable being towed was possibly giving a slightly grey appearance behind the clear steam – certainly nothing like his purported cloud of smoke.
He becomes more deceptive when it’s realised that Classique is 46 ton – not a weight to be seen to be changing speed in a short distance.
