The phrase 'good effort, mate!' springs to mind in this instance. Apparently accidents caused by chatting on the cell phone while navigating are not confined to cars.
 
From the article;
quote:

"The captain told us he had placed the ship on automatic pilot and was not paying attention," Yiannis Ftoulis, head of Stylida's port authority, said.
Well, he won't have to worry about it in the future. The flushing noise you hear is this skipper's career swirling away down the loo!​
 
Well, if he WAS paying attention and still mistook the Greek mainland for open water I would really be concerned!

If this guy is given charge of a toy boat in a bathtub it will be a miracle. What a gas!
