Just how did the trawler manage to do that ?

Was it an insurance scam, with all the trawler's crew now claiming for whiplash injuries ?

I would like to throw myself at the feet of RR. I, of course, meant HMCS Winnipeg. Of course it is the same Queen we all follow.

Interestingly enough, this has been kept well out of the media spotlight since the incident occurred. Winnipeg has not moved since (I saw her there 2 weeks ago, with the still present with a hole in her bow.)

Damage is going to cost approx $255 million Canadian. - About 160 million GBP or so I am reliably informed. Although as these things go, I imagine it will turn out rather more.

On the contrary, my belief is that there's a lot to report - will Seaspan have to pay for the damage as both ships involved were under her jurisdiction? Or will the US company, bearing in mind she was under tow at the time? Or, more importantly, will the Canadian taxpayer? Why did the Seaspan tugs not enforce/have a plan to prevent such a incident? etc

However, I fully appreciate your view on the matter and can assure you my tin foil hat will remain in my wardrobe for some considerable time. :D All the best!

That looks like a lot to report but it is actually three questions that can be distilled down to one; who pays?

That'll be for the investigation which I may have said, has yet to report.
