      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Privateer holed and dismasted

55 posts in this topic

It was a cold and foggy night and only a fishing boat and Privateer were out on Cape Cod. One was fishing; the other, it was going from halifax to Newport.

Things that go bump in the night.......

 

All crew safe- nobody hurt.

Those are pretty much the details right there. What he failed to mention was that it was one of the few competitions that Privateer didn't win....

That sounds more believable, couldn't understand how they/you couldn't get out of the way in time.

Was either boats making the required sound signals for reduced visibility as outlined in the COLREGs? How many crew aboard Privateer for the trip home?

(not trying to assign blame, just curious)

Glad to hear you and all the crew are alright Soley. There are lots of ways this could have been a different story in a bad way.

 

That is a hellva split in the hull. You must have had to nurse her back to Newport.

 

Lights? Radar? Sound Signals? What went wrong?

Edit: Understand if you can't comment due to any legal issue. (but like nauti, curious how a fishing vessel with radar ploughs into a sailboat like that).Main thing is that you are okay.

We did what we could, to sail in a prudent manor, unfortunately we dont believe any one was in the wheel house of the fishing boat. They guy on watch saw a guy of the bow of the fishing boat run into the wheel house just before the collision. He didnt see anyone else in the wheelhouse..

FFS Matty, the insurance company is still collecting information and you are giving first-hand accounts on the internet? We are talking a claim in the hundreds of thousands. Have some respect for Ron and keep your mouth shut until it is all said and done.

Looks like it was a blue boat . . .

 

Starboard side, hmm, hate to say it but that would suggest you were the "give way" vessel.

 

Sorry to see, hope insurance man's up

Bumch of years ago a brand new J24 was racing one of our PHRF weekend series. Boat got hit by a fishing tug(google great lakes fishing tugs) as the sailors were jumping port and starboard into the water. Gouge nearly to the cockpit footwell. Two on board the tug were probably cleaming or sorting catch. 7-9 witness boats for that one.

Yeah Matty.

Stll dont know if you were under power or sail.

Visbility?

Radar watch?

We wouldnt want anything like the truth coming out.

We wouldnt want anyone to lean from your experience

We would like to be dishonest assholes

Did the trawler have lines, dredges, nets out and were they displaying cones and/or green and white all-round lights?

If so, see Rule 18 part C.

If the fishing vessel was engaged in fishing with the proper navigation signals and lights displayed, they have right of way over more maneuverable sailing vessels, even if they are sailing. (No this is not an exact reproduction of Colregs, but you get the idea)

Sailing does not give you rights over all non-sailing vessels.

Dude you obviously dont know much about dealing with insurance companies, the coast guard or lawyers regarding a marine incident. The truth is out there, but doesn't necessarily need to be made public for all to see yet....so STFU you "dishonest asshole"

Seems to me that a working fishing boat has ROW over pleasure boat under sail? I always stayed away from the fackers, no matter how many course changes they made to run me down......

 

And most race boat BN's on deliveries only sail if the wind is ideal and they have enough hands. It's a job, not a holiday; and usually a power boat ride, and often single or short-handed. Used to leave at 3 AM for the tide to motor from Newport to Stamford in 12 hours.

Geezus H. Kjrist. Fishing Vessels that have nets, lines or dredges down and are displaying inverted cones and/or all-round green over white lights have the right of way over all other vessels except those who are restricted in maneuverability and vessels not under command.

AIS is a wonderful thing....I'm assuming of course the fishing boat had a transponder turned on and didn't do a radical course change at the last minute...

Why would you assume that?

AFAIK there is no requirement for <300 ton vessels to have AIS.

Well aware of BN delivery practices, been there and done it.

 

Both boats steaming, pass port to port.

 

Fishing got gear down or getting up, as you say, stay the fuck out of the way. Doesn't matter if you're under sail or not.

I dont know what you are talking about, but yes MD44 did get a timeout for allegedly calling Bull Gator a pedophile. But in fact

never said that. I think I said he was 'like' a pedophile.

Oh that's nothin'. No.6 got a time out for saying some are going to call Geo. Zimmerman a "mopedaphile" (i.e. lover of mopeds) and Hack got banned for pointing out that the offending post had not been removed!

The hall monitor has completely jumped the shark.

Please refer to COLREG's Navigation Rules. Section 3, Conduct in Restricted Visibility (Rule 19).

There is no stand on or give way vessel when operating in restricted visibility. Both vessels are obligated to determine if "...risk of collision exists. If so she SHALL take avoiding action in ample time..." It looks like a fairly square T-bone, avoiding action was not taken in ample time by either vessel.

 

Basically it sounds like both vessels screwed the pooch on this one. Degrees of fault will very, but that is up to the lawyers to figure out.

 

Sad day, I'm glad everyone is OK.

True. If you think a screen name is 'people' than you need to turn off your computer.

 

I think you know that you can out any sock puppet you want. "hobot" isn't "people" any more than moondance44 is people.

Good question, Alan !??!

 

How about more than 15,000 *25,000 miles delivering race boats, and other type boats since 1970? Often in reduced visibility, with fishing boats all around... Were you wearing nappies, or short pants, in 1970, Mr. Clean? :D:P

 

BTW, I am hoping that Madison Beach Club will come up with your 700 words and some pics of the Atlantic class Nationals; that you promised to put on the front page. I will keep you posted.

 

* edit - I forgot about Bermuda to Hawaill on the Frers 80 in '82 and FLL to Azores in '79 on the Golfcart 50 that nearly foundered in a hurricane...
