In the aftermath of a boat collision

The skipper of a Dolphin Watch Ecotour boat that collided with an Outward Bound cutter on Saturday had been with the firm only one month, but had 16 years experience in the marine industry.

Dolphin Watch Ecotour owner Paul Keating said the man had been officially employed with the company since December after completing a rigorous application process and a 10-day unpaid training period in November.
