The fact that there will never be "complete findings" is the reason this discussion is taking place. The process that would investigate the real reasons this collision occurred is closed because neither the CG or WSF have any desire to go any deeper into the event.
One of the reasons why this incident got so much publicity is because of the name of the yacht, the stupid confession of the yachtie that he was down below in the head and the public's complete ignorance of the navigation rules. Everyone seems to believe those ferries have the "right of way" or are surrounded by some magic force field anti terrorist safety zone so the yachtie got what he deserved and should be pilloried for his actions. Even this site introduced the event with sensationalist headlines and a completely false analysis of the events leading to the collision. This kind of ignorant press played right into the hands of the CG and WSF who really don't need or want the kind of publicity and investigation this event should have produced if the facts were presented and the press was corrected immediately.
This entire thread shows the power of suggestion, it exists because even professional mariners have drunk the Kool-Aid of the news media who claim the yacht rammed the ferry, the yachtie caused the accident because (fill in your own version). How many times in this thread have we read that we should not condemn the ferry driver because the same might happen to us? WTF? So now professional mariners are ready to sweep this under the rug because it makes them feel queasy about being held responsible for something they might do or not do in the future? Hang you heads in shame if that is your reason for thinking a wrist slap is all that ferry driver earned.
As much as it may sound cold and heartless, passenger safety and the culture of WSF might have been better served if the yachtie was drowned in his sinking yacht after it was rammed by Chetzemoka. Dead men tell no tales so at least then the red herring strawman of his stupidity and incredibly ignorant confession would not have been the focus of all discussion.
The public outrage of a sinking and death would have forced the CG and WSF to take a microscope to the reasons why a ferry driver would ignore bridge team advice to make a slight alteration of course to pass behind the right of way vessel (the least that he was legally required to do) and why no actions were taken to avoid a collision until it was well beyond the point where any such action could change the outcome. When action was taken the driver was apparently so overwhelmed by the situation and his lack of situational awareness that he actually turned back into the collision so that the yacht was t-boned instead of being sideswiped. The NTSB would have looked as deeply into the ferry driver's history and mental state as they do that of a pilot carrying an equal number of passengers.
I will come right out and say it, this Chetzemoka thing stinks of a coverup and collusion between the CG and WSF to avoid bad publicity for the ferry system at a time when they are facing the threat of a serious shortage of senior crew.
