Rene, were you piloting that ferry?
That was pretty cool. Bunch of rich snobs got their boats crushed...
Prolly sucked for those that spent 8 or 9 hours on board, 50 feet from shore and not able to leave the ship.
Where did this happen?
ouch I will check out the news website to get more info. thats the ferry I ride all the time
I saw it on the news, laughed my ass off, glad no-one was hurt. Why build new ones the average of the fleet is 29 years old. Next time you are on one look at the paint, The Q of Nanaimo is getting about $8 million of welding done next year cause the rust is so bad.
They can't be trusted to build new ones...remember the "Fast-cats"? Great ferries, something like a billion over budget and when they were done had to run at an artifially low speed to prevent shore erosion...thus defeating the prupose of building high speed ferries in the first place.
Some new conventional ferries would be a good idea though.
