the International Rules for Prevention of Collision at Sea (IRPCS)

How many of those "speed boat captains" do you think are aware of any of the maritime rules and laws?

They use the same tactics as when they drive their cars - Me, Me, Me!!!!!!!!!!

 

I wonder if the captain flashed his lights at the barge.

Who knows? Perhaps they see it the same as their 'one child' policy - a means of population control.

Been there, done that, got the T-shirt? Here, as a public service to our Chinese brethren (and sistren) is Chinese for "I survived a boat crash in Thailand." 我在泰国遇难 courtesy of Google Translate.

 

Go to town, T-shirt shops and tattoo parlors. Soon some young Thai entrepreneur will be offering crashes as part of a day's outing. "Actual sinkings extra!" It will be all the rage back in style-conscious Shanghai.

Not many.  Just trying to point out the obvious on who was to blame.  Any competent investigative body would come to the same conclusion.

I'd have thought there would be more chance of "going back unconscious to Shanghai."
