Bruce it was the other way round
The bridge hit the ship.
Great ending for that miserable boat.
No life lost but Kenny Strong had a close shave (he was the captain)

I read that the helmsman would not leave the wheel and that he hit the pilothouse deck ,that must have been very close seeing as the pilothouse and stack got it

The third mate and the Captain took off when they say the bridge stating to decend but for some reason the wheelsman was slow of his mark and was inches away from being crushed.
The inquiry was something else and the bridge tender was husstled off to hospital before the press could talk to him.
Course the Seawy denied all responsibility!!

A truly awesome film. And I use this word in its correct meaning - not as misused by our US cousins who would use it to describe a new flavour of ice cream(*))
