Safety Issue

Silky Ocean's master and crew did not appropriately consider the information provided by the navigational charts and publications when they planned the ship's passage from Port Kembla to Ardrossan. This led to the ship sailing through a charted fishing area and being two miles closer to the coastline than was recommended.
