If you haven't seen it before:

Upper Gulf of Mexico & Texas Coast

TX: VHF audio from the oil barge/freighter collision

Date Reported: Apr 02, 2014

GIWW Mile: 350.0 West of Harvey Lock

Reported by: Mike Ahart, News Editor


The Houston Chronicle presents the VHF Channel 13 audio exchange from the M/V Summer Wind (freighter) and the M/V Miss Susan (towing the oil barges) during the minutes leading up to the disaster, and pairs it with the corresponding charted AIS. Normal navigation rules would state clearly which captain is at fault...what do you think?
