An oiler is the crane operators helper. They rig and lube the crane.
I'm not a lawyer but the way I understand it is that, in a case like this, the company "meaning the crane company" will usually pick up damages via their general liability policy.
Trouble is, in a major &%$%up like this it could max out the policy. After that point they could go after the company assets. Typical coverage for a high risk operator is $5M.
If they have the coverage it will be soaked up fairly quick.
Tell me if I'm missing anything:
$3M New Boat
$1-2M New Crane
$100-1M Repair Dock Pier Structure (yes it was damaged)
$100K Repair the massive dent in ship when the crane counter weight hit it.
$100k Several days down time for the cargo ships waiting to use the dock. I was told this could be costly but dont have any figures.
Unknown ecomonic damages when the pier is shut down for repairs.
$100-2M BS claims, ie I can't fish anymore because the loud noise scared them fish away. Don't laugh, this is California.
HURLRYR........pretty close except for the last time.
TANK....where are the photos!
Here are the photo's...This thing is TORN UP!! There was even a whole sh!t load of oil under it from the motors.
The bottom picture you can see that the whole helm was shifted (out of the boat) upon impact. I don't think there's going to be much salvage of electronics there.

Hey guys, I won't be able to be this years card boat in Catalina for the SCOPE Poker Run, we were having our new boat delivered this past week and there was some problems and damage that occured with the shipping company...we have made a damage claim with the freight company but they said it may take some time to process the claim, so in the meantime we will just have to keep using our SCARAB
That is a shot of the piece of crane that was cut away and left. I'm no crane expert...But it looked like there was some failure there.
