Going out on a ferry in a typhoon... hmm... not exactly a way to avoid getting a Darwin.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

The link is missing a ":" after the "http".

Without viewing, let me guess, it's in the Phillipines.

The Philippines are still much like the US in the 1920's and 30's when it comes to maritime safety. their ferry boats seem to be inevitably overloaded and ill equipped. There are also a lot of them due to the archipelago nature of the country. I can hardly recall a year going by without such an incident. But then, the Hooghly River's bora frequently kills thousands and it barely makes the back page of the Bombay Times. Safety standards are the luxury of rich countries. Let's hope that the Philippines and India, among others, become rich in our lifetimes.
