Narrative:
The floatplane was taxiing on the water when it failed to give way and collided with a boat. The boat's captain was unable to alter course safely and was attempting to reverse clear of the float plane at the time the two vessels touched. No one was inj ured, minor damage caused to the ferry but more extensive to the floatplane. The aircraft operator has since reminded staff to comply with all the applicable regulations.
