I'm surprised he didn't get stuck in the mud before getting that close!

Yes, maybe, but it doesn't actually show Mark striking it. It could be he was just wanting a closer look at the sign on the marker buoy..?

I didn't hit the marker!, thanks to warnings from my buddies on dock. Can't imagine the catastrophe that would otherwise have resulted! And the tide was high and the Trinka draws little!

I was a bit disappointed of the removal of the shopping cart in the middle of the western channel of the turning basin. It surely helped to assess water height/depth.

(Al, for yesterday's lunch on the Coot, Perla drank the Lagunitas IPA you handed me on our Petaluma trip. Ran out of Cokes! I had water.)

That could happen when you least expect it.

Back in the day we picked 3 survivors out of the water in Southampton, UK after their sailboat thought a tanker running into Fawley terminal would give way to sail.

I know a guy who sailed INTO an anchored ship, on a sunny afternoon. It left a mark on the sailboat... Guy on the helm was engrossed with setting waypoints on his handheld gps.

In considering the tanker's role in this, how is it that the rowboat was not spotted by the tanker and avoided? The captain of the tanker could surely have taken the precaution as the target was seen on the radar. Despite its small size, such an object spotted on the radar of a tanker can be construed as a semi-submerged container or floating debris and trigger appropriate precautionary measures.

I say this with a lack of familiarity with protocols commercial ships follow in such situations. It is more of a common sense thought than one of whether protocols were followed.

But I do wonder why his radar detector and AIS alarm did not warn him in time.<
Sounds like he was not the only vessel that was not under command at the time.

IF I were attempting a stunt like this I would glue a small microphone to the hull and plug it into an amp and a speaker.

Ships put huge noise in the water , and even 5-8 miles away would be easy to hear.

Weather one could row out of the way of a 25K wall of steel with 5 min notice is a different question.

With luck they might have running lights to figure where there heading .
