#103

"The scraping of sea-ice against the hull led to a failure of riveted plates." Gosh, was it only a scrape? Was it only "sea-ice"? Would a timber-built ship have survived such a thump as the...

If my recollection is right, this was a simple case of a boat coming upstream with the tide behind her and then needing to swing through 180 degrees to drop alongside her berth. Alas, timing was...

On the question of tidal current, may I be the first to point out that unless and until the vessel became somehow fixed to the ocean bed, the matter of current affected every person on board to the...

I agree with Filipvs.

It is inhumane that any survivor of a shipwreck should be imprisoned without trial, apparently while his/her clothes are still wringing wet: as seems to have happened in this...

Thank you, Jose.

If it is right that the ship was passing through an area where tight turns are called for as a matter of pure navigation, then it seems that the loss of stability could have...

The Waratah?

How so? In the Waratah case there was surely strong evidence of heavy weather and/or Cape Agulhas rollers? I've no wish to digress from this thread, but in a fair-weather case...

First reports suggested daylight, fine weather and that something (a rock? ) had been hit.

Much of the ship's bottom has now been seen.

Are there any reports of damage to the hull, consistent with...

#3674

Likewise, there can be little doubt that the QM had sensed by that time that those who were in charge of the navigation had lost the plot.

It would be very interesting to know what legal advice (if any) might have been given to the QM before he pleaded guilty.

But I suppose that we shall never know that much.

He appears to have been...

With apologies for labouring the point, it does seem to me that an injustice has been done to the QM. I might well be wrong, but I wonder if any reader can throw any light?

I recall reading that the...

Many thanks, Jose,

The point that I would make is that the QM could not be expected to understand the necessary requirements of the navigation - because that formed no part of his duty (and was...

THE QM.

His brains were in his trousers and his hands were on the wheel;
And yet the Court convicted him. Perhaps he will appeal?
He listened to the orders which he did not understand;
And all the...

Many thanks, Jose.

I hope that you'll forgive me, but if a rabbit on the forehead or a brain in the trousers is enough to earn a criminal record - then most of us are far more at risk of being put...

Many thanks, Jose.

I appreciate that at the moment when disaster struck, the matter of whether the helm was to port, starboard or amidships was irrelevant; and we all have a fairly strong...

An order to turn to port would/could have made sense only if there had first been an order to turn hard-to-starboard (and properly executed for several seconds).

It still seems improper to...

Thanks, ML!

Not exactly clear, is it?
