  1. Stop main engine, the ship wasn’t carrying much speed to the damage would have been limited. There was a tug attached to the starboard side ……. didnt think to use that for close quarter maneuvering ?? Even if it was a prop fault there was is ways to deal with that situation ……… prop was still turning even at the height of the damage, remove that man from the bridge….

  2. What idiot was at the helm of that ship. He should have stopped engine and had the tug pull him away from the marina, instead he throttles it and attempts to turn to starboard, resulting in the stern wiping out another 5 boats that shouldn’t even have been damaged

    Who ever is in that bridge deserves to lose his ticket
