Some enforcement DOES happen


Recommended Posts

"The skipper of the Karma, Richard Livu Panescu, was charged by Maritime New Zealand (MNZ) with operating a ship in a manner which caused unnecessary danger or risk to any other person, under Section 65 of the Maritime Transport Act."

 

Can someone remind me why the chap who hit the classic a few years ago and sunk it was not charged under section 65?

The power of the internet and it's ability to turn fiction into fact.

 

With all the info out there and not one of you can get even close to the truth, that's sad.

there you go

 

See third result down.

Hehehe, an entire app dedicated to the gentle art of RTFM - like it :mrgreen:

Just that given the ordure cast SCB's way I would've expected the settlement to have received wider coverage than it did (or didn't).

Still doesn't really say how much Gypsy's owners were left out of pocket or otherwise.

Quote from the Herald re Gypsy

Asked if he thought $200 was a fair punishment...

...

The fine is the largest the harbourmaster, Andrew Hayton, can give under Auckland Council bylaws. Mr Hayton said Charles St Clair Brown was found to be in breach of maritime rules over collision prevention.

...

Maritime NZ said it could charge only commercial vessels under the Maritime Transport Act , or the Health and Safety in Employment Act.

 

Interesting ...

False reporting by the Herald?

False statement from MNZ?

Law change?

The US skipper fined had a commercial ticket?

really glad to hear that gypsy has been put right, that was a terrible thing to see. not exactly the same thing as enforcement, though -- the authorities still come out looking pretty toothless.
