Update: Ferry Warned Other Boat Before Collision
December 23, 2011
CapeCodOnline: The Steamship Authority ferry Katama slowed down and stopped and sounded a danger signal just before a lobster boat struck the starboard side of the ferry yesterday afternoon, according to authority general manager Wayne Lamson this morning.
“At no time did the lobster boat acknowledge any radio traffic from the Katama or stop to ensure the safety of both vessels,” Lamson said in a press release today.

Crew aboard the 216-foot Katama ferry saw the other vessel approach the ferry “at a high speed” just prior to the collision, Lamson said.
