Yep,

The Coast Guard boat is at fault, the power boat is the stand on vessel. However each has a responsibility to avoid each other.

Coastguard at fault............

unless they got some sort of blue light running and then really they should have cut behind the speed boat.

Gross negligence I would say on behalf of the coastguard.

The Coastguard skipper should now be swabbing the deck.

He gets paid extra to make decisions. This time he made the wrong one and should pay the price.

He's really lucky he didn't kill two men. I know they weren't paying attention but the video evidence shows the coastguard to be at fault irrelevant of what the other men were doing.


LOL..................................

Just Watched That (id A Fuking Shat Myself) Lucky They Ent Dead!!!

I Think The Coast Guard Should Have Moved As He Could See This Hazard Developing (but The Bloke In The Speedboat Should Be Aware Of Wat Is Going On Around Him)

Betta In A Rib They Would Of Bounced Of And No Harm Done

is it real?? No sound on this computer cos I've broke it (whoops) so didnt hear any commentary but it looks staged. CG boat is the give way vessel but the speedboat has an obligation to take such action as is necc to avoid a collision no matter who is the stand on vessel. Also Dave's appendix to irpcs come into play- rules to live longer:
1) no one else knows the rules
2) might is right even when he is wrong
3) the survivors of any collision are invariably on the bigger boat

At least its not a uk boat

IMHO the skipper/captain of the coastguard vessel is a complete idiot.

Firstly the coastguard vessel should have given way under the IRPCS - but even if under some local byelaw.. etc the coastguard vessel was indeed the stand on vessel, its clear that the captain of the coastguard vessel was aware of the potential collision situation very early on (by virtue of him shouting at the speed boat ) and should have taken action to avoid the collision.
