Bigger boat had the right of way, (and its the bigger boat!) but was too stubborn to avoid an accident. Smaller boat is unexplainable. Both are morons.

Agreed! Seems almost impossible.

Maybe everyone was in the hot tub on the smaller boat.

I'm in total agreement!!!...

I'm never too proud to give "right-of-way"...

Just hope that any persons lounging in the lower station/salon, were aware and had time to move/react...

Looks like a lot of head crashing on the bridge also...

Almost like a plane crash...It's not the fall that kills you...It's the sudden stop...(sic)

WRONG!!! According to both inland and international navigation rules, the smaller boat approaching from the R was the "stand on" vessel and clearly had the right of way. The larger vessel is the "give way" vessel and had the duty to alter course to avoid the collision. The video clearly indicates who is at fault. I would love to have access to it if I were the stand on vessel obviously going to court over the incident.
