Last week a fire on one of the ships, this week an anchor "spontaneously fell overboard on it's own" ....
Can you imagine if airlines were run like this ?

A B.C. Ferries Spirit Class vessel exits Active Pass enroute to Swartz Bay, north of Victoria. (CBC)BC Ferries service between Victoria and Tsawwassen has reportedly been interrupted after the Spirit of British Columbia stopped abruptly when its anchor unexpectedly dropped into the water.
Ferry passenger Brenda McCorquodale told CBC News the ship had just crossed Active Pass when it came to a halt.
"The boat started shuddering and immediately did a very large doughnut. After about 10 minutes the captain came on and then told us that the anchor had spontaneously dropped from the boat," said McCorquedale
