Syrtech : Russian navy would’ve blown you up instantly because they wouldve assumed you were somalis lol

Christian : "leave the area" you're in the middle of the ocean, whats the "area" hahahah

CB775NT : Bad Boys, Bad Boys.. We are about to light you up with our main gun over!..

svxnger : Sadly good seamanship isnt included with the purchase of a boat

John Mansell : Probably thought you were Somali Pirates.

Sam Rader : Imagine after the third time they just hear "Prepare to fire"

Dylan Clarke : People saying they don't get how it's restricted, its only restricted while the ship is passing by, there's a certain area around the ship in which you are not allowed

Kameraden : Sorry but these waters are restricted to the Chinese Merchant Fleet, As a HMAS Ship paid for by the Australian Government who is Under China's pocket, you're ordered to turn around and leave the fish alone. These fish are protected, and property of the Chinese People.

NoJusticeNoPeace : "Oi fishin' vessel, issizza warship Bruce, state yer intentions-like." "Warship Bruce, issizza fishin' vessel Bruce, we're arvin' a burl at fishin'." "Fair dinkum, mate, ya arvn't gots any poofters wiv ya, arve yer?" "No poofters, mate!" "Ace! Good on yer. On yer bike, then, fishin' vessel Bruce." "Too right, warship Bruce."

PinkOld : This was really interesting, but speaking as an ex-squid (USN) who also served on a guided missile destroyer (as the Hobart appears to be), you have to understand that these guys can't take any chances that you aren't terrorists. Just remember what happened to the USS Cole to get the idea why this is such an important issue.

Brettbaena : I wouldn’t be in a laughing state if I heard a navy destroy trying to make contact .. Especially when the destroyer turns and is heading your direction ! The name ( Navy Destroyer ) has its name for a reason don’t take it as a joke !

rein1705 : No respect for your Navy eh? No one asked what heading they should egress on? great radio conduct. The US Coast Guard would have boarded you for sure.

nyiesah : These guys need to do a maritime day course and brush up on their give way rules and their radio etiquette

America : Probably the most exciting thing to happen to the Australian navy in over 70 years

Mosor Vlad : What great time to crack jokes ...hahahaha let's make funny time with a warship in restricted waters. HAHAHAHAH so funny ! Idiots!

damonstr : Hobart class is a bad-ass ship that's going to give fits to anyone that tries to fight them.

Colby Lewis : It's because of the USS Cole where a small boat with explosives rammed a U.S Navy destroyer.

SilverStone : Idiots, stop with the arrogant crap and talk to the warship, perhaps say something like "Roger that we were unaware of the exclusion zone, do you have a heading for us to exit by?"

cat : "we're stealing oil" *LOL*

firestar1461 : With the bf1 repairing tool, you can destroy it

Cyber Cade : Shoots a torpedo or a tomahawk missile towards them. The camera blacks out.

Phyëji : *Warship “Hobart” vs FishingBoat “BadBoys”* 😂

Ruddiger Burns : I wonder if they knew a gunner on that ship was begging for some action...... I bet when they heard it was just home grown fisherman his hand sadly fell off the bolt carrier no charging today dammit!

One Bad Hombre : You guys act like you are 12 year olds. The driver of the boat is too scared to talk on his own radio?? LOL.

Nexus Diesel : " I cought a REALLY BIG FISH!!... HOLY IT HAS GUNS"

Chris Trevino : Lmfao try this move with the US Navy and you will be instant History!

rcrogers6 : Let's see, radio procedure worthy of a child. Failure to state your intentions. Do you know what that means? There could have been a notice declaring an exclusion zone for bombing or gunnery practice. The comments on the boat confirm the ignorance and idiotic attitude of the crew. Oh well, let's just keep going without telling them what we are doing. Were you to get in a distress situation, it would be amusing to hear that radio traffic. No worries mate, the Bass Strait is known for balmy, calm weather.

Michel Dawes : Jesus boys! If you had a brain amongst you, you’d be dangerous! First of all, look up COLREGS rules 15, 16 and 17, then, if by some chance you actually have a chart onboard look up under the title bar for exclusion zones. Ha ha ha, you’ve just been responsible for diverting an 8000 tonne Australian warship (I s’pose it could’ve been worse, you could’ve blundered into a live firing exercise if you were off Point Nepean - and they would have definitely launched the helo for that!)and right about now, some poor junior officer is copping a good old fashioned reaming from the XO (Commanding Officer, i.e. the Captain) for altering course (To Port no less!)for some blokes in a fishing boat. At least everyone on YouTube is getting a good laugh out of your antics! Keep doing what you’re doing and one day you’ll make the news! ;-) Tight lines boys, hope you caught some...

Michael Shaw : Really .... Taking on Australia's Most Powerful Warship ...... The Ships Radar alone, could have melted all of you at that range !!!!!!

Reg : Ahahaha just a bunch of blokes having a good time

Zack Riley : Seems like someone needs to read up on The International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea 1972 and the Australian Notices to Mariners. Also, not international waters. Look up Australian EEZ. Hand your license in.

Vara : "Requesting magnetic heading for fastest way to exit restricted area" would have been more professional.

SexyThanos : The scary part that they probably didn't even notice is that they probably had snipers and other people already aiming them down

jeff schnablegger : Warship Hobart! Warship Hobart! YOU have just cut across my Crab pod lines and Cost me money. PREPARE TO BE BOARDED AND FINED!!! 😂😂😂😂

Doubting Thomas : A small outboard motorboat charging toward a destroyer? That’s never ended badly before.

TristanTaka : Boat full of Aussie tools, jesus

Shawn Jun : *Gets blasted into smithereens*

Phillip Mulligan : If they really didn't like you and wanted you to stop they could have fired a gun shot across your bow.

Anthony Bland : Within 5km of ANY operating Australian Navy vessel is considered a Restricted Maritime Zone. In other words, if you see a Navy Vessel traveling through an area, THEY have RIGHT OF WAY and you must stay a minimum of 5km from them. If you move within that range, you will be of interest to them.

Mark Rogers : Small craft can carry high explosive devices...in this day and age naval vessels have to be on high alert for small craft coming near them. Research the USS Cole and you will find the reason for their caution.

Ogeid Zepol : All navy vessels no matter what country they are from have a restrictive safe zone with in the warship radius, usually is 5km aprox, so when ever encountering any navy vessel they always have the right of way, a recreational ship is easier and faster to maneuver than a 10 tons ship, check your navigation rules and regulations is in there, that's why.

nocalsteve : I was really hoping to hear someone say, “Can you just stop being an arsehole for a minute, mate?”

The Grinch : Just imagine.. You were most likely in the cross hairs of more then one piece of machinery capable of ending everyone on that fishing trips lives. And the people that had their fingers on the triggers/launch panels/big red buttons, looking through high powered scopes, seeing every bead of sweat on all of your faces, they held the power to end all of your stories right there with one touch of a button.. Crazy hey..

Matthew Ash : If it was American they would be barraged by artillery

Jesse Patch : of course yous had to get hms hobart the most advanced ship in the Australian navy lol

bamadeadhead : Lol WTF man! alcohol and boats DO NOT mix. Think that ship had you outmatched JUST A LITTLE bit...

Rae Anker : The Royal Australia Navy Warship Hobart , is testing a new system for identifying each single person on a particular craft , it can detect,from as far away as two nautical miles anyone's physical size and appearance . This is invaluable for finding bogans on a boat ,as they can detect the Collingwood supporters from their missing teeth, tattoos of the southern cross and strangely their sisters name . Also of note is the phrase that is usually the last herd before being fired upon , Narr fucken she'll be right.

Charles Little : Boys don't f*** around that ship could have shot you well beyond when they actually saw you with their eyes

Eddie Thompson : Doing their job the RAN, behaviour patterns and security. Simple as that. I would go as far to say to the the guys in the speedster do a proper seaman ship course on radio procedure etc. One could go on.

Gerald Grandfield : Wow that was painfull. Learn how to talk on the radio for real. Darwinism at its finest.
