This amateur video shows a terrifying near-miss on a small boat that has stalled.
If you’re stalled in a small boat, the last thing you want to see is a huge tanker bearing down you. This video captures quite a close call as a small boat just misses being obliterated by a larger tanker.
Warning: graphic language toward end of video.
Guess they should have bought the book on how to avoid large ships. But seriously, some tense moments there. Those people are very lucky this time.
Remember, those large ships don’t have brakes, and can’t stop or turn easily. Without further context, it’s hard to say if the captain of the large ship made a correction or not. But, at the end of the video, you can see people standing on the bridge and they look as freaked as the people in the small boat!
Always remember that the larger ships have the right of way!
