Sir, nothing is beyond duct tape

As someone's signature line said ( may even have been on here) " duct tape is like the Force, it has a light side and a dark side and it holds the Universe together..."

It's an odd one to collide with something that size. No 27 is a proper lightfloat, about 8m LOA and 3m beam.
It'll be interesting to read the MAIB report when it comes out......

Oh come on be fair, we don't yet know the facts. You never know he may claim that it hit him....

No, that would require nautical knowledge. I reckon he thought it was green for "go"

Good job he didn't meet a red one, he might still be waiting....
