Where? This one was 2 years ago. NASTY....These captains crack me the f?%k up. How the hell do these happen in wide open expanses of water?? I hate incompetence. In all aspects of society. Take some personal responsibility for crying out loud.

Unreal. Sometimes the vessel names are quite fitting. Even when I would coastal cruise at 12 knots I'd be glued to the charts, radar, VHF etc. God forbid you try and hail someone on the VHF these days. No one can be bothered! Even LEOS and commercial folks don't respond many times.

Rant over.....whatever. It's never gonna change.

I bet you this was the guy who was arguing he could run at 25 knots at night because he was an experienced captain........

Is looking out the window still a thing?

I don't know what the weather was, but currently it's pretty foggy and plenty of boats out, running 25+ kts. Hopefully they have radars they know how to use.

Just because you can, doesn't mean you should 🤷‍♂️

I was out yesterday running to Montauk from Greenport with a charter - fog the entire way and limited, limited visibility. Don’t understand the radar being set to 12 miles....

I hope he stopped to assist, heard he may have had his own problems with running gear so surely was limping, but who knows true story yet...

Probably on auto-pilot, because once you're on auto-pilot, navigational rules don't apply to you anymore.

Unbelievable. Hoping the men on the dragger are ok. We hit fog for the last 20 miles of our trip yesterday and I was amazed to see the cowboys running at 20+ kts with little regard for anyone else. Almost every boat I see has radar but are they using it ?

Not shocked. Ran back to New Bedford from Block Island today in pea soup. 50-100 yard visibility the whole way. Twice almost got run into. Both times they passed 75’ off my boat from port to starboard. One boat was a 17’ whaler hauling ass with no radar and the other was a 33’ Grady with an open array. No clue why you have to get that close to someone out in fog that bad.

I was out fishing newport and it was pretty intense early, I have no radar and I had to stay around an open area near jamestown marina until it started to clear, I watched boats without radar heading out the east passage with no regard for the fact they were in a shipping channel, also watched boats with radar go by at 20 knots.in 500 ft visibility.
I also heard people bitching at each other on 16 that you need to give way, do you see me, cursing out etc.
I think I heard the coast guard call for the dragger and sporty that collided, not sure maybe it was another 2 boats that collided I am a long way away to hear but they said long island sound.
I still don't get the radio checks on 16, 4 times heard coastguard correct idiots doing this, 16 is basically a comedy act to listen to when the fishing is slow.

We came into Montauk at 2 am the fog was really bad. Couldn't see the jetty lights till about 50yrds out. Passed three boats heading out in the harbor. I think ais should be a mandatory piece of equipment on all boats.
We where running in kinda hot due to being in a tournament but having ais and one radar screen set on one mile and the other set on 5 miles I feel safe running at speed.
