Not that I wish particularly to defend the BA, it must be common sense to expect bridge gauges to offer an approximation and especially if there is not one, for the skipper to take great care and not assume it the fault of anyone?
This great blame culture is something entrenched in society these days - the person to blame is the Skipper. If you think it is going to be a tight squeeze surely anyone with a modicum of sense would take it slowly = its a bit like the Reedham incident.Skippers are in control of boats and if you damage them in a situation you are unsure of, why is it someone elses fault?
