I doubt that being able to detect the merchant vessel was the issue given the advanced sensors available on board, more likely it was a lamentable loss of situational awareness on the part of the Officer of the Watch(not unlike the situation of Ambush going aground) and will no doubt involve a lot of interviews without tea or biscuits and impede or stop dead some careers.

  • Commercial shipping has a rather worse record for hitting terra firma, each other or hapless yachts than submarines do and fishermen are amongst the most irresponsible when it comes to keeping a lookout according to the COLREGs, as a look at the MAIB annual reports would show. Everyone must do better to keep themselves and others safe at sea.
