Sometimes taking a ferry is a crap shoot. Some of them are fantastic, some of them not. Most of them will bring you to your destination, but some of them will unfortunately sink. So you never know what will happen. Here is one of the latter category....

Have a look at the video below. It's from a ferry, the Maria Betania, and it's somewhere in Brazil. Obviously the ferry is in a rough sea, but the shape of the ship seems to me a bit weird, since the front is open; open to the elements and sea.

Brazil Ferry in Storm

The ship's cargo master has placed motorcycles in the front, right where they are in the open air. You can guess what happened when the waves became big and violent. Some bikers saw it coming and quickly moved their motorcycles to the rear, but the ones on the left were stuck in a nasty situation.

The ferry is currently under investigation by the Navy, and the ferry company has already made a statement that any costs occurred because of the sea water will be reimbursed.

The video is a bit slow at the beginning, with some small waves hitting the front, and some bikers managing to move their bikes. The real action starts around the 1:30 mark.
