Another reason to stay alert and around the helm even with auto pilot.

That was going way to fast for auto pilot what would have prevented him from running into another boat even if it hadn't failed?

It is the law to keep a lookout. Remember the incident in NJ(?), couple/few years ago, when 62'r ran across the fishing boat w/ 4 NY business guys on board ... I think 3 were killed, major controversy about whether or not there was a lookout. Captain says there was ... NO WAY .. law suts ... settled out of court for major $$$$ Forget the 62' vessel's name??

I agree that is major fiberglass damage for autopilot speeds.
Must have been quite the impact.
