      @DCC under the 1978 maritime accordance act, section V, subsection "international waters", responsibility lies with the moorer. "Under no circumstances is the moored vessel allowed to manoeuvre unless acts of God."

      Riley, mooring near a dock? Are you friggin mad? Hand in your licence.
      In all seriousness, you guys looked like you had so much fun. Elayna looked like she's back to her perky, vibrant best.
      Btw, who do you follow in the footy?

      @DCC That's correct, and Riley did not lose his privileged position by trying to avoid the crash. Ultimately, I believe, every insurance would adjudicate in favor of Riley since the tow has sucked LV into its stern. Thanks to Riley for sharing this with us. And he has set a great example - how to remain positive after such an experience 👍

    Riley, At your earliest convenience take the boat in for a repair estimate, then send the operator and his insurance company a copy of the estimate which is now their bill to pay. If they don't pay you can put a lien against their vessel in court and you don't need a lawyer. You weren't at fault mate. An operator is at all times responsible for any damage caused by their wake. You were at anchor which means under right of way rules the least maneuverable vessel has the right of way. You can't get any less maneuverable than being at anchor so once again you are in the clear. Don't be so quick to assume fault.

      @Kevin Walters agree. If I was him instead of moving he should have been on radio asking what his intentions are so he would not have complicated the situation since he stated that the other M/V did not call. That is the reason why we all go by lights, shapes, whistle signals, and radios.

    • Kevin Walters
      Kevin Walters Hace 2 meses +3

      Firstly, no body ever has right of way on the water, but the other vessel was definitely the give way vessel, if you were legally anchored and in compliance with the IRPCS. .
      Unfortunately you complicated the situation by manoeuvring on your anchor chain.
      Secondly, did you have an anchor ball up and was it the correct dimensions as stipulated in the IRPCS?
      Thirdly, were you anchored in a prohibitive area. This on its own would not give the barge carte balance to ram you, but……
      Due to you motoring on you anchor chain, this situation may need a court to determine liability, I would guess you will both be found to be at fault.
      These situations are never easy and it’s always best to avoid a collision at all costs if possible.

    • Justin Bouvier
      Justin Bouvier Hace 2 meses +2

      No one can say who is at fault unless they have a chart, was on the boats, and knows rules of the road. First was that a channel, did it have a traffic separation scheme, was the boat under its own power moving before the accident because he admitted engines was running before hand, did the other vessel try to contact the sailling vessel and maybe radio was turned down and no one herd because of filming or someone was accidentally on wrong channel, was the proper day shape raised to let people know you are on anchor, was there restricted visibility, and most importantly did both parties do what is required to prevent a collision when both seen what was going on and didn’t know each others intensions. There is a lot of unknowns to say who is at fault and if that area was a anchorage or was it impeding traffic. Is it a high traffic area. Can’t anchor in high traffic areas unless it is designated. People don’t understand but pleasure boats are the most dangerous vessels in the world because they have no schooling, dunno rules of the road, and think they have the right away at all times. When license people for the most part come through we are always assuming people don’t know so we do our best to prevent accidents but its best to stay in one place if the vessels are already close to you because there is to much time needed to get a vessel underway.

    Elayna, I'm commenting on your melasma post here, to be sure you'll see it ...
    People can make such asshole comments online. This isn't about them. This is about what you and your husband think, that's all. You are a beautiful woman... with or without the freckles. I'm a redhead, so I get the freckles thing. To me, they (and my increasing fine lines) show a life well-lived. You're living your entire life on the water, and largely in the tropics... You will get freckles and smile lines. So will your husband, so will your children. You will always be beautiful, but beauty changes as we progress through life. It *changes*, it doesn't lessen. No one looks 22 forever, and those who try often end up looking freakish and just flat-out weird. Let the beauty of your amazing and wonderful life be reflected on your amazing and beautiful face. 💛💛

    Because i am a captain on bigger tugs. He should have called on radio to see what your intentions was. Maybe he tried on 16 or the boat traffic channel for that area idk. He may have known y’all was on anchor and was setting up for that turn and you moving messed him up with wind and currents. Him going full throttled was to try to push you away not trying to be dangerous. Yes it is big engines but if something goes in the wheels it will shut the engine down or he will feel it and most likely shut it down. The problem was that you was dragging anchor probably so that is why your bow got sucked so close and also you came ahead to far. If you left it alone it would have been better. I set up all the time on turns and what messes most of us up is someone trying to help, over thinking instead of just standing by, or people who get excited and start making crazy turns in front of us. IF THERE IS ENOUGH ROOM JUST STAND BY MATE.

    OK I love this stuff ! First, if you think that the tugboat captain would've run into you initially, if not for you moving away, then that is 1,000% on him or her. The End. Now, SECOND (meaning next discussion), if you think that, by you moving away, being cautious and allowing the tugboat captain a generous amount of increased [[[space to maneuver...]]] and then... you allowed your boat to drift back into the zone that the tugboat now thinks he or she has available to maneuver... dang, it looks like you have now accidentally created a dangerous situation, and anything that results from that mistake (seems like the tugboat captain tried his/her best to power away from you when he/she realized you had drifted back)(and hey, who knew that the powering forward would actually cause you to be sucked CLOSER to the tugboat, I mean I've never heard of that and I've been a deckhand on a river ferry for a few years in a very busy harbor with lots of tugboats), is therefore put on you, unfortunately.
    That's my $0.02 I'm honestly surprised that these sort of accidents don't happen waaaaay more often. Going from just weekend getaways on boat trips, to actually living on a boat 24/7 and having to constantly stay aware and alert at all times, well it's just incredible how few incidents this couple has had. Very commendable and thanks for the free content all these years !

    Collision is a difficult one, as you say had you done nothing would it have been okay - I doubt it given that you would have been further back than you were when you settled back on the shorter anchor chain. On the other hand having seen you move forward the other skipper could reasonably have believed that you were moving forward and would keep your engines on to stay out of the way and not expected you to allow the boat to drift back, when you did it sounds like he really did try his best to avoid you given limited options. All in all one of these things where in retrospect it could have been avoided but shit happens if you spend long enough at sea, live and learn. Really annoying to put a dent in the boat though! Anyway looks like you didn't let it get you down and had a great time with the regata!

    • H N

      The tow should have never come that close to the anchoring yachts. The skipper has to further consider the swing radius of the yachts. LV dragged a few meters, so what. The tow came way to close and was way to fast. The skipper of the tow has recklessly created a hazardous situation that he ultimately could not control. Unless there are not any facts unknown to us, the responsibility rests with the tow alone. Thanks God you got off lightly!

    As the captain of the vessel its my responsibility to avoid the collision. I would have moved or maybe reversed to NNE if I thought the anchor chain would be clear enough. You can not however drift back into that cleared space tho. With that being said, the other captain could have and should have taken precautions as well. Just never count on it. All in all, just a scratch. Love the channel..................thanks for the content.

    Regarding the barge, you didn't stay put, you motored ahead. I think you may have faked the barge operator out by giving the impression you had the ability to maneuver. You then didn't hold position, you drifted back as he made his turn. He then tried to avoid you by gunning his engines forward, and this "sucked you into his stern"? I don't think it is common knowledge that a barge accelerating his engines would suck in a small boat that is close. I believe your error is that you should have held station at anchor. I doubt the barge would have run you down. These guys are pros, I've seen them maneuver through a crowded Hopetown harbor many times with no incident.

    My parents, Tom and Kirsten, are the owners of Dellis Rae. They LOVED seeing you all on the boat. My mom is a huge fan of yours and was so excited to hear our boat was part of the journey!

    Even a slight(?) bump can cause unseen damage to the frame of the vessel, even if the hull seems to be intact. I presume you checked the inside of the hull at the point of impact to be sure. Were you flying the black ball?

    I think you could’ve certainly made multiple videos about this week regatta. I’m surprised you were able to condense it to 18min. It was so much fun to watch !!! Thanks for posting

    Amazing! So awesome that everyone turned out to be amazing “normal” people making the trip that much extra.
    I smiled so huge watching this whole episode. Congratulations on a successful first regatta! And congratulations everyone who made it extra special for the La Vagabonde crew. ❤️

    A couple of thoughts on the collision. We’re you monitoring your vhf? Did the tug have AIS? In that situation was the tug considered a Restricted Ability to Maneuver (RAM) vessel? And we’re you anchored too close to the dock or in an access channel to the dock?
    At the end of the day both vessels were required to take action to avoid a collision, regardless of who was the stand on or give way vessel. Judging from what I saw neither of you made the maneuvers required to avoid the mishap. I’m surprised you did not converse with the other captain either by radio or sound signals. Of course that observation applies to both captains.

    Even with that briefest of description of the collision, it's looking like if you had taken no action the collision may not have occurred. Did you communicate effectively with the other captain as it was happening? Inquiring minds etc....

    Vessel under power is responsible to avoid. Should have remained at anchor until captain of barge tug unit requested that you move.

      I agree James. Stay put at anchor but aware.

      That's seems correct. I might have hopped on the radio too to see if they were aware.
