Sea Prince Goes Down

Postby Strong Eagle » Fri, 04 Dec 2015 10:34 pm

I have ridden this particular boat many, many times while going to and from Batam for a day of golf.

I always made a point to sit on top or nearest the door... and here is the reason. They had to run out of the channel at Nongsapura in order to do what they did.

Getting entangled in floating rope shouldn't have caused severe damage unless they were full steam ahead and crew lacked damage control experience.

Well, safety not bothered with, with few daily crossings.
