The Venezuelan ship appears to have been trying to seize the cruise ship, which is designed to safely sail through icy waters.
Astonishing;- they’ve not only done something at Darwin Award levels of stupidity, they’ve filmed it and released the film for the world to see.The hardened ice-breaking bow of the cruise ship made quick work of the Venezuelan naval vessel.www.thedrive.com
As far as I can make out, the graphics are trying to claim Resolute (the liner) turned into and rammed Naiguata (cambio de rumbo brusco = abrupt change of course) . Given the relative handling characteristics of a 1,450t 22kt naval vessel and an 8,400 gt, 16kt liner, that would imply the Naiguata's crew were asleep at the wheel and even more incompetent than in the scenario where they rammed Resolute.Did they honestly think that the cruise ship could stop in that short of distance?
