For the 'L" of It...

In this era of radar, GPS, AIS and instant international communications we ask ourselves how a daylight collision between two major vessels at sea is possible.

This picture is of the MV Alpha Action and MV Wan Hai 307 - both of their bridge crews swore they were keeping a vigilant watch and could relate with precision what they were doing when the vessels were five miles apart.

It would seem their vigilance turned into monotony which likely explains this disaster!
