Further analysis of the Addendum written 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
M Pigneguy writes “When I had established that there was a risk of collision with the yacht Classique by virtue of its relative bearing remaining virtually unchanged, under Colregs 22.17 (1) and (2)(b) especially, I could not alter course to port as that vessel was still on the Seaway 2’s port bow.”
1 : The use of the relative bearing method to determine risk of collision has been described by Farwell in his “Rules of the Nautical Road” as a most unreliable method – “the change or lack of change indicating nothing more than the unsteady steering of own vessel”
M Pigneguy failed to steer straight & furthermore failed to combine his relative bearing with Seaway’s compass bearing. The Maritime Rules wouldn’t accept a Relative Bearing as being anywhere near the standard of a compass bearing. Maritime New Zealand not only allowed M Pigneguy to get away with it, they employed their Hired Gun, Barry Young to dishonestly approve it.
2 : M Pigneguy’s reference to Colregs is unscrupulously deceptive.
Rule 22.17(1) particularly insists that Seaway must keep its course and speed if it regarded itself as the stand on vessel – Seaway failed to..
Rule 22. 17 (2)(b) says “a power driven vessel in a crossing situation (with risk of collision) must not alter course to port for a vessel on its own port side.” Classique was not on Seaway’s port bow as from the position seen in photo 2 – she was ahead, therefore Seaway was not a stand on vessel obliged to keep its course & speed .but could’ve maneuvered as it chose.
