boat wreck



This is a link to a short video of two dive tourism boats running into each other on a clear day in a big ocean the Red Sea actually. I believe they are out of an Egyptian port, 'nuff said.

So the cameraman was on duty, but not a helmsman? Wow!

Unless the rules are different where this happened and if something else was not apparent the boat with the camera was the give-way vessel, am I missing something?

Nice to film your screw up.

That video has been around for years, but it still makes me wonder WTF happened?

Will watch the video later when I can stream but fishermen and divers threaten and actually shoot at each other over wreck sites or if one believes the other shouldered them off a wreck.

I'm surprised that more collisions (intended) don't occur.

Any info on the video suggest it wasn't intentional?
