Should be fined

Actually a boat is responsible for its wake. The large container ship was more than likely traveling way too fast creating huge wake that was dangerous to all the other vessels in the area. If it caused that many problems for the ferry, think of what it did to all the small fishing / recreational boats that could have been in the area at the time.

The Coast Guard should investigate and fine the Capt of the container vessel for whatever rules of navigation he/she violated.
