Container ships collide off China - merged threads

Take a look at the Vessel Finder AIS plot in this GCaptain report about the collision betweeh the Maersk and German container vessls off the China coast. Looks like a classic? http://gcaptain.com/major-damage-to-...sion-off-china

Vessels approaching end-on or nearly end-on - and one turns to port at the last minute?

Very odd.

Crisis counselling. Is this the politically correct description of a millennium bollocking?

A near perfect cumulative turn.

Was it in a compulsory pilotage area?

This seems highly unlikely.

The action replay shows substantial turns to port at different times by both ships before the collision.

There is no mention yet of any fog.

Very odd indeed.

I would imagine the various slight alterations by both vessels was for collision

avoidance of the hundreds of small fishing craft that proliferate the area.

Am still dumbfounded by the alterations to port though ?

There are faint echoes (no pun intended) of the Andrea Doria / Stockholm incident. "Radar assisted collision"?

The Andrea Doria/Stockholm and all of the other cumulative turn cases involved fog - of which as yet there is no mention here.

A further mystery is that radar-plotting and familiarity with it (and VHF communication) have all improved a thousand-fold in the sixty years since the Andrea Doria collision.

I was thinking that there must have been other vessels close by,not showing up on the display we can see.
