Shortly before the container ship that spilled 58,000 gallons of oil into San Francisco Bay hit a Bay Bridge tower, the Coast Guard warned the pilot in charge of the ship about his course – but the pilot immediately radioed back that the ship’s instruments showed he was on the correct heading, the pilot’s attorney said Friday.
The Vessel Traffic Service, a Coast Guard facility on Yerba Buena Island that monitors all commercial ship traffic on the bay, told pilot John Cota by radio as the container ship Cosco Busan approached the bridge Wednesday morning that «your heading is (compass) bearing 235; what are your intentions?» attorney John Meadows said.
Meadows said Cota’s navigation aids showed he was on a different heading, so he told the Vessel Traffic Service dispatcher, «I’m heading directly for the center of the span,» Meadows said.
