156. It isn't that clear to me.
Edited on Sat Feb-07-09 12:33 AM by Usrename
It looks very much like the whaler was slowing in front of them. That would be a big no-no. If they were overtaking the protesters (as it appears to me) then they must maintain course and speed. It's looks like they intentionally slowed. That would make any collision their fault, unless they can claim they were doing so in order to avoid a collision, in which case there might share the blame. But if they did change course or speed, then it DEFINITELY isn't the protester's fault. The other ship either gets all or just some of the blame if they failed to hold their speed and heading.

At least that is the way I understand it, but I could be wrong.
