    This pic, plus all the issues the cruise lines have had lately, makes me glad I don't work in the shipping industry. :lol:

    I'll tell you the problem. They used either cardboard or some paper derivative.

    That's crazy. Pretty incredible that both halves are still afloat, though.

    The first thing to pop into my head while looking at that first picture was the cover to Radiohead's "Hail to the Thief."

    Im not surprised that happened... am surprised, again, it stayed afloat. probably a tense few minutes for some crew members.

    Oh I dunno, a bit of gaffer tape and it'll be as good as new! :lol:


    Joking aside, It's amazing it's still afloat and a good thing no one was injured. :)

    Going by the pictures it looks like the waves were somewhat high and the structural stability of the boat, combined with how much shit is on the deck, just couldn't take it.

    Fun fact - that sort of split, combined with flooding during a massive storm is what sunk the Edmund Fitzgerald.
