    isn’t it a little early for the April Fools news stories?
    I’m sure a lot of people thought of the movie Titanic when they heard of this ferry sinking, but the wreck is mere days old, hardly a historical relic.
    But incidentally, if the ferry did indeed hit something, does anybody know why it sank in 427 metre water? Icebergs float; rocks don’t.
