      One boat weighs more than the other, one boat has a single engine with limited horspower, one boat is travelling significantly slower than the other and is hard to manouver. Logic prevails, that one party could have avoided the situation while the other could not, I will let you figure the rest out for yourself.

    Who was in the Wrong? We’re the captains drug tested and Breathalyzer? People were injured.

    There’s nothing in the rules that speaks to the weight of boats, the number of engines or which is faster. Lets not make stuff up and just let the facts speak for themselves. The authorities know how to find the answers.

    Ferry operator had the lighter more manuverable vessel, this vessel is jet propulsion i think… if so can spin around on a dime.
    Basically you drop her in neutral if prop, then when shaft stops spinning reverse and you thrust repeatedly… if you try full on you can bend a shaft and or open a stuffing box or both on older vessels.
    Ferry boy…. Best you pay attention….
