Doesn't look like anyone on the fishing boat reacted at all, even after it hit the ferry !!!

Just lucky it didn't get hit by the bow of the ferry, otherwise it would have been much worse...

My impression is that the trawler, right at the beginning of the video, gets aware and steers the wheel, just in time to avoid wrecking badly the boat against the ferry.

Just shows not only are there crazy drivers on the roads, but on fishing boats also

Helmsman on fishing boat either drunk, or busy looking at his smart phone.

lanky lad, my sentiments too...I was going to write "cant drive on the highways...CANT even drive on the HIGH SEAS !!!"

For me, what's shocking about this incident was the very minor outcome.

Usually these things end up in tragedy.

and the white center line was missing, the fishing boat was a Tesla and driving on the left and the ferry took his right of way.

In any case, the guy at the helm must not have known that on the high seas, priority on the right prevails; therefore wrong fishing boat
