Re: Accident

That was the ferry Queen of Oak Bay, I had forgotten all about it. I see that it's still in operation https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MV_Queen_of_Oak_Bay but I guess a lot of the smaller boats in the picture are not.



I remember seeing it on the news as one of those accidents I could only shake my head at, like the Costa Concordia, but I don't live in the area so it drifted from memory.

Re: Accident

28 pleasure craft destroyed, no one hurt, no lives lost.

I wonder what happened to the one who forgot to replace the cotter pin on the nut?

It’s ok no need to worry.
It wasn’t part of his key performance indicators. Didn’t affect his bonus.
