RIB in collision
Two weeks ago two boats collieded in SSW coast of Finland at the time of the midnight. One boat was Brig 600 Eagle RIB and another one was 4,7m aluminium Buster, conventional open boat. Weather was calm but heavy clouds, that means dark. (usually in Finland itīs not too dark at the night time in the midsummer).
Both in Buster ( 2 pob) died, and one who was in the Brig (14 year old boy), 3 persons in the Brig survived.
I have read from newspaper that Buster didn'n have any nav light but Brig did.
The reason for the collision is still open, but something we can learn is that keep your nav light on, and if you don't have one, get it now if you'll be out there after the sunset.
