If anyone knows the owner of Vantage, please dump a lot of manure on his verandah.

- failing to give way

- exceeding 5 knots within 50m of another vessel 

- exceeding 5 knots within 200m of the shore

- not giving a sh*t about the effect of his wake

- being an all-round dickbrain

Also I note from your bottom picture that he has cut across your bow from port to starboard when you have right of way. Certainly not good seamanship.

I happened to be going down the harbour yesterday on a Riv***a  (at 7 knots) when the harbourmaster pulled up T2 the powercat -I imagine they heard me cheering as that prick has caused a breaking wave to break into my yachts cockpit off Queens wharf in the past -and still he continues with no regards for others.

I had an incident a few weeks ago where a large red launch (called Red Express) would have run me down if I hadn't taken evasive action.

I contacted the harbourmaster with the name of the boat, time of day and location.

I got a notification it was received. Nothing since.

Nobody was hurt: not interested.

I sent the video to HM and got a reply this morning saying that I was clearly the stand-on vessel and that they’d try to contact the owner.
