UK Reports on Oban Allision

Tuesday, July 26, 2005
The UK Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB) issued its report on the investigation of the allision between the ro-ro ferry ISLE OF MULL and a moored vessel and a pier in Oban Bay. The ferry was approaching its berth. When the master moved from the center control console to the starboard wing control console, he forgot to start the bow thruster. As the officer of the watch started the bow thruster and transferred control to the starboard wing control console, the master’s control over the port engine was lost momentarily. By the time full control was regained, there was insufficient sea room to slow or maneuver the ferry. The primary cause of the allision was determined to be poor bridge team management practices. Report No. 13/2005 (HK Law)
