Re: sailboat and ferry collide!

Lets see here....routine running every 45 or so minutes...day in and day out......
Ferry crew can work in their sleep....not miss a beat.......barge boys know what I am talkin' 'bout too......the sameness of doing the same route thousands of times.........

This is a tough gig......Unless you are gonna rotate cpts, crew, etc constantly you will get repetition fatigue. There is no solution....so the bean counters factor in the risk and voila ....acceptable...this is what insurance is for.........


Damn sorry to see this stuff happen....the "golden bb" got him.
