Seems to be a very avoidable near miss.
Negligence is the only explanation.
- No precipitation
- Modest winds vs available power
- Pilot involvement
- Both vessels owned by same firm
Even though Monson was broadcasting on AIS? We see the track in the second video.If you don't want to watch 44 minutes the readers digest version is that outbound cut the corner and only saw inbound after they "popped" out from behind the gas tanks. At that point it was easier for inbound to swing wide, which they did.
