Raja Ferry is and always has been a disgrace. They have no respect for their passengers and their boats are floating rust buckets.

Surely the captain knew  about the sandbar, was the captain/helmsman tested for alcohol/drugs?

Ok  sandbars move with the tides, but as this is a regular service they should have been aware of this.

I can see the sand bar from 9000 miles away it is more than obvious.

They should be made to pay!  That is not a sand bar.  That is the end of the reef with many gigantic coral in that area. I often paddle board over that area.  Those black soot spewing jalopys are so outdated and polluting that often tourists see an approaching ship and think it is a vessel on fire.

I'm not saying you are lying but please can you post some proof of 'gigantic coral in that area' because if there is I'll be over soon to do some snorkelling there myself.

 

BTW the comments about the ferries are approaching the truth ;-)

In actual fact the true headlines read . . .  "105 totally peed-off passengers unable to leave due to a further four hours of staggering ineptitude."

But 'rescued' sounds so much better . . . .

According to one of my "KP spies" the ferry has now been moved... that's all I know!
