Sea Shepherd MY Ady Gil collision - the truth

Sea Shepherd MY Ady Gil collision - the truth

On January 6th, 2010 Sea Shepherd’s chartered vessel the MY Ady Gil slammed into the Japanese whaling vessel the Shonan Maru No. 2 and blamed the Japanese.

Looking at the video from the Shonan Maru No.2 it was clear the MY Ady Gil accelerated right into the Japanese vessel.  The proof in the video was the wake in the waters behind the MY Ady Gil illustrating acceleration by the MY Ady Gil.

The truth surfaces close to four years later.  While in California recently I met with a person who was there when the collision happened. 

In the interest of maintaining the anonymity of the person, I am stating the following: The person was or is a current member of Sea Shepherd and was either on the MY Bob Barker or the MY Ady Gil. However the person was there when the collision happened.  I spoke with the person either in person, on the telephone, or on Skype, however I did speak directly with this person.   

At the time of the collision the person at the throttle of the MY Ady Gil, thrust it forward causing the MY Ady Gil to accelerate forward thinking they would be able to sail fast enough in front of the Shonan Maru No.2 thus avoiding a collision.  It was a miss-calculation; however the cause of the collision was the result of thrusting that throttle forward.  Meaning Sea Shepherd caused the collision, although not purposeful.  

Immediately in the aftermath of the Sea Shepherd caused collision the Shonan Maru No.2 radioed the MY Bob Barker offering assistance.  The offer of help was declined by Cabin Boy / Peter Helmethead.  It was reported his response was idiotic and vulgar. 

Another causality of this collision was any notification to Mr. Ady Gil.   No one thought to notify Ady Gil that the vessel he chartered to Sea Shepherd for $1.00 a year was involved in a collision. 

Further information from this individual:  All the equipment and electronic gear was removed from the MY Ady Gil and was not returned to Mr. Ady Gil, the rightful owner.  The MY Bob Barker was towing the damaged MY Ady Gil when his Excellency Watson ordered the release of the vessel to either sink or be left floating aimlessly in the Southern Ocean.

This decision was made without any consultation with the owner, Mr. Ady Gil.  To Sea Shepherd the vessel was worth more at the bottom of the sea as a propaganda tool.  Further proof cults cannot be trusted.
