Re: asleep at the wheel
Hi Charley. Damage to the starboard side of the destroyer tells me that the tanker was coming from the right, and the destroyer crossed it's bow. Vessel on the right (TANKER)is presumed to have the right of way. But both vessels are required to take action (stop and blow danger signal) if collision is imminent. I wonder when the details will come to the surface.
