Second, many AIS units, my Furuno FA150 included, do not permit a receive but don't transmit mode (although I recognize that newer models do).
The Queen of the North ferry up here hit an island and the AIS alarms sounded.
Two people on watch were to busy doing the naughty to notice.

Don't see how AIS played a role in that tragedy.

I'm reading comments here talking about Prowler returning from a multi-day fishing trip. Well, 1.5 day trip is what I show. What I show is that it did an overnight trip originating at 10:00 PM on the 25th. They had 22 Anglers and caught 28 California Yellowtail, 67 Skipjack Tuna, and 6 Yellowtail Tuna.

Then a 1.5 day trip originated at 9:00 PM on the 26th targeting bluefin tuna. That would have been the trip they were on at the time.

The San Diego Reader (a freebie mag.) reported the Prowler to be a total loss.

Yea, figured total loss. Looking at Prowler hanging in the slings, looks like the aft is sagging badly. Broken back. Done.

Recent article in Nov 16-29 edition. Many of the same comments posted here were conveyed through The Bloody Decks website, including those by a passenger on The Prowler. Still no definitive answers.

I think the lesson here is that as much as logic says this can't happen, it does. Even on US Navy Destroyers, with lots of man power and the best electronics, as we've seen recently. I'm sure if you asked either of these captains 5 minutes before the accident "what are the odds of a collision out here?", they'd both say nil.

You can never let down your guard, especially at night.

Not to be glib, but you wouldn't have because they were both asleep.

If in fact anyone had mentioned it was a possibility, as they should have (were ordered to do), the collisions wouldn't have happened.

I agree that vigilance at all times, a knowledgeable watch team, and a culture of double checking and triple checking are the keys to safety afloat.
