    You are wrong here, the smaller vessel must always avoid the larger vessel due to maneuverability. Large ships don't turn on a dime, and you cannot prove that the larger ship was aware of the condition of the smaller vessel. They are a business, they are not out there trying to ram other vessels.

    I'm gonna go with "You can't deliberately cause a collision", under any circumstances, especially in open sea.....
    If it were a narrow navigable channel, the larger ship would have right of way, not the case here....
    As far as whales, are they really needed as a foodstuff?......
    It's one of those things that should be regulated enough to not make it economically viable, IMO.....

    not true. a ship engaged in fishing has the right of way.

    I am just sorry it was only one boat destroyed.

    Whaling is perfectly ok, its not like the Whales have a irreplaceble role or benefit.

    What about the tactics of the anti-whaling group?Are these things okay just as long as it is the anti-whaling groups doing those things?

    ramming other ships
    blocking and preventing access
    sabotaged
    shooting water canons
    throwing stink bombs
    trespassing
    chaining themselves to property
    intimidation

    Nice try but stopping someone for killing something that is basically a cheeseburger is a lot different that killing someone who deliberately takes innocent human life. I have no problem to saying I am glad when someone takes the life of someone who kills innocent human beings.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
