    The fat whale d00d, is an incompetant pirate, who should be shot.


    HE should also be held criminally liable for damages and injury....


    they are attacking the japanese fleet, should they not defend themselves?

    i saw the video clip last night, the whalers seemed to be in the right according to colregs. the protesters took this too far, imo. they were at fault for this crash.

    as for whaling, i don't like it.

    They are pirates who attack other vessels.... You cant chase down ships, throw stink bombs, and prop foulers at these ships, then cry when your sorry ass gets rightfully rammed.

    If the whaling ship deliberately rammed the protesters ship, then the whaling ship is at fault.

    Controlled whaling is no worse than controlled deer hunting. As long as animal species aren't wiped out and can sustain themselves, there's nothing wrong with hunting them.

    I watched that sea shephard show, and, it should be used in court to make a clear case of self defense.

    agreed.

    didn't look like that to me........i'd bet the whaling ship won't be found liable.

    the thing about that is whaling for food is illegal, and most whale species are endangered already

    defend themselves from an immobile boat?
    clearly the japanese ship knew where the smaller craft was to be able to target the water guns at them
    the obligation of the larger vessel was to avoid the other boat; instead, it rammed that boat
    international rules for avoiding collision (excerpt):
    ...
    6. Safe speed
    Any vessel must proceed at a safe speed, which she can to take action to avoid collision and able to stop within the distance for the prevailing conditions (including the visibility, weather, traffic condition, background lights, her manoevrability (e.g. stopping distance and turning circles) and draft in relation with the available water).
    When radar is in use, also consider if there is any limitations of the equipment, range scale in use, weather and other interference, weak targets, targets density and movement, and use radar to judge the visibility is much accurate for objects nearby.
    7. Risk of Collision
    Vessels must use all available means to determine the risk of a collision, including the use of radar (if available) to get early warning of the risk of collision by radar plotting or equivalent systematic observation of detected objects. (e.g. ARPA, AIS).
    If the distance of any vessel is reduced and her compass bearing does not change much or a large vessel or towing vessel at close distance or if in doubt, risk of collision shall be deemed to exist.
    8. Action to avoid collision
    Actions taken to avoid collision should be:
    positive
    obvious
    made in good time
    ...

    Now that that is out of the way, I'll address the OP.

    Without seeing the full unedited video, I can't rightly say who is at "fault", but based on what I saw from the show "Whale Wars" I'd be inclined to think it will end up being the protester's fault that they got rammed.

    BTW, if you call your cause a war, you better expect some casualties.
