Re: New York Ferry
We do it bigger here and don't hurt anyone although one guy on those floats had to run for his life.
Our news stories about the NYC crash sounded a lot like some we've had here - failure of the reversing gear - that's what it was in the attached clip. Changing from waterjets to props in what was by all accounts an already troubled boat sure sounds like the source of the problem in some way.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
