Measure twice...Duplicate IGNORE

Recommended Posts

https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2020/aug/24/sydney-new-ferries-wont-fit-under-bridges-while-passengers-on-top-deck

"The New South Wales government has confirmed that 10 newly purchased ferries will not be able to safely pass under bridges along the Parramatta River if commuters are sitting on the top decks....Minns suggested to the Sydney Morning Herald that commuters would risk decapitation in they did not move below decks.

“Now alongside late-running trains and Covid-safe buses, commuters will have to worry about bridges knocking their heads off as they battle Sydney’s transport.”

 

That's OK - they have responsible Australian crews to ensure their safety. Every time. Can we say lawsuit waiting to happen from the estate of the unlucky commuters?

"Now it will be the responsibility of the crew on board the new ferries to ensure all passengers have moved below decks before travelling under the two bridges."

From the same "government" who bought a fleet (?) of trains from overseas that didn't fit through some of the regions tunnels.

According to a cab driver I had once, they just need to dredge under the bridges to make more air room for the ferry.

ballast the tanks

raise the bridge

dam the water

lower the chair legs

helmets

pool noodles affixed to the bridge

hoist the ferry over the bridge

transfer ferries and walk under bridge on a dock.

Soo many good ideas here!

Ignoring duplicate thread... check.

Sheesh. All they need to do is let air out of the tyres.

Moving all the passengers to the lowest deck should lower the boat enough.

Well, if someone would post to the original thread it would help. As it is, this one appears on the "not read" list and the original is MIA.

I just got back from cruising, so I forgot to ignore. Can I make up for it somehow? Is there a double-ignore feature here?

I guess we'd better just keep ignoring this topic and not tell Zonker you can hide a thread.
