Further analysis of the self incriminating claim made by M Pigneguy, pedantic skipper of Waiheke roll on/roll off  accepted by Maritime New Zealand with alacrity, to wrongfully prosecute Bolton, the innocent skipper of yacht Classique
As an extension to his spurious claim, M Pigneguy’s report had an Addendum attached with an excuse for not turning where Seaway turns usually when other skippers are turning at Browns Island as they run from Waiheke to Auckland. M Pigneguy was only a relieving skipper on Seaway. About all M Pigneguy was relieving on this trip was his antagonism towards Bolton it appears.
He comes out with a long winded story about how he keeps clear of the 5 metre depth contour North of Browns Island because of what he describes as the “squatting phenomenon”
Definition – “The squat effect is the hydrodynamic phenomenon by which a vessel moving quickly through shallow water creates an area of lowered pressure that causes the ship to be closer to the seabed than would otherwise be expected. This phenomenon is caused when water that should normally flow under the hull encounters resistance due to the close proximity of the hull to the seabed. This causes the water to move faster, creating a low-pressure area with lowered water level surface. This squat effect results from a combination of (vertical) sinkage and a change of trim that may cause the vessel to dip towards the stern or towards the bow.”
Why it wasn’t experienced by other skippers in the same area is not explained. M Pigneguy said that “In depths of less than 5 mtrs, Seaway’s speed is reduced by 1 knot” But that doesn’t apply here.
On a chart, a stated 5 mtrs depth exists at chart datum – the lowest astronomical tide and mean lower low water. This means that generally there’s more than 5 mtrs in that area & on this day it was high tide giving an extra 3 mtrs over it. It would appear as if M Pigneguy came up with this excuse as an after thought & a red herring in line with his other evidence which has been found to be untruthful.
