Safety Issue

Silky Ocean's third mate assumed that a collision between his ship and Peter Crombie had not occurred. He did not immediately report the incident to the ships master and he made no attempt to contact the damaged fishing vessel. In doing so, he disregarded his legal and moral obligations to ensure the safety of the fishing vessels crew.
