Falling off of a ferry is serious business as apparently any vessel that large can suck a person into the propeller blades, and that just seems like a nasty way to go.

You have to work at falling off a ferry.

Chima Cum?

Plenty of seamen on that boat for sure.

Not as hard as you have to work to save somebody who fell off a ferry...

I was gonna say.... I was actually on that very same ferry a few years ago and remember looking over the edge. You'd have to climb to get over it, if I recall.

reagabeast: You have to work at falling off a ferry.


Yeah. You aren't going to slip and fall off because its wet out.

Falling down the narrow-ass stairs between the car deck and the passenger deck is unfortunately a lot easier as the permanent gouge in my shin bone can attest.

He should have dropped everyone off and then picked her up on the way back.

It's more likely you'd die of embarrassment sh*ting yourself as you getting stuck trying to get out of your car when it's parked too close to the wall.

It's okay, Dad. I won't ever tell anyone.

Well, you could just walk off the deck also, but you know there's those pesky chains showing toy that... you know... your dumbass shouldn't be wandering around there...

And it's not easy beyond that as you stated. The railings at the passenger deck are over waist height, and the vehicle deck has voids that are also pretty tall.

But the real question is, did they recover her phone so that she could post the really awesome selfie?

The ferries are having a hard enough time keeping their sh*t in one sock firing all the anti-vaxxers. This woman's cry for help probably screwed up the route for HOURS-

I work the NYC/Jersey shore ferries, you can't even work with full vaccination documentation.

We train damn hard for these situations in all kind of weather, could be why my company saved this guy named Sully and all his passengers a while back in the Hudson.

Screw that noise. This was the plot of one of the last episodes of the Emergency! TV series from the '70s ("Most Deadly Passage").

Chimacum is one of the new ones, with much wider stairs than the older boats.

My AC unit rattled and shook when it started up one day. It settled down after about 30 seconds. I investigated and found the remains of a small bird splattered everywhere inside. ☹

Only the best people on that route: on that route a few years ago when someone decided it was a great idea to kidnap another ferry passenger. Not sure they thought their getaway plan through, but it pissed off a few hundred of us that were an hour late for work.

She made it to the other side. Pay up, lady!

Probably not.  The fact that it's a Washington State Ferry alone was enough.  The schedule is approximate by indian time standards.
