30. The ICR videos make clear what the Ady Gill was doing
Be interesting to see if they have some unreleased ones of the incident that trickle out over time. ICR also has their own set of press releases that no one should take seriously either. They are not nearly as amusing as Watson's bombasts.

In another thread, there is a person claiming it was a ramming and its that way all over NZ and AUS media. Watson could still score PR points on this one.

Taking the Ady Gill into those waters was totally irresponsible. The Steve Irwin is a bit better, but it does not have an ice rated hull.
