Do you guys really believe that being a naval orifice makes him well versed in keeping a lookout?

To be fair - it was only the construct, aka the Hand, aka Twim who said that - so please don't tar us with the same brush - we're just having the craic with it

The commentating always cracks me up

However, haven't most of the boats in the same area broke the 3300' exclusion zone

The charge of not seeing it is rubbish, everyone knew it was there but they all took risks and one hit it

So why don't they charge everyone as their sale numbers are clearly visible?

By they way I am not sticking up for the guy who hit it, he's a nobber for sure

As an ex RN officer I find his actions very embarrassing to say the least as even a supply or engineering officer has to undergo a fair amount of sea training prior to fleetboard. I have witnessed quite a few howlers whilst on the bridge of grey funnel line ships and even though people are highly trained and professional, we can all have a bad day leading to an "oh sh@t" moment. I don't think any of will know what he was thinking but im sure he knows he boloxed it spectacularly. It's a cracking video and I'm glad no one was killed but I'm sure he will require a new crew!

I think the issue here is that he broke the rules (which we all have done, who hasn't exceeded a speed limit or parked for too long in a parking space), got caught red handed, and is now trying to worm his way out of it by pleading not guilty. The court case will no doubt cost the taxpayers (us) a fortune.

We don't know what branch he was (Now a reservist according to news last night).

A pilot / supply / engineer / medical officer may not have stood a bridge watch for 5 years or more.
Actually, come to think of it, a Medical Officer may never have stood a bridge watch!

He cocked up and should stand up and take his penalty even if it was a one off. Pleading not guilty faced with that evidence points to him being a muppet!
