Yes. Don't assume some one is on watch when you are making a course alterations to go across (or under the stern) of a ship.

Here's another one for you - a ship colliding with a bridge.....

http://www.solentwaters.co.uk/Genera...ps/page20.html

The SWF file is massive, maybe 30meg or so and loads all the way before playing.

There are quite a few good vids on the Solentwaters page.

That is the best ever!!! And even though it's streaming it actually worked and is pretty good quality - only had to wait about 15seconds for it to load - 10mb is awesome!!!

Amazing video. How to trash a career in one easy cock up.
Hope no one got hurt. Was that a roadbridge that it hit?
