image for Newfoundland Ferry Nearly Capsizes due to Unruly Behavior

Port aux Basques, Newfoundland (The Gulf News) - Roger Flood, President & CEO of Marine Atlantic Inc. which provides ferry service between Newfoundland & Labrador and Nova Scotia, announced a near-sinking of one of the world's largest vessels last week due to "unruly behavior" by some of its passengers.

MV Caribou, the largest ferry vessel operating in North America and the largest icebreaker in the world, took a hard list to starboard as scores of passengers tried to rock-the-boat from side-to-side. Most of the offenders identified themselves as either 'Newfies' (from Newfoundland) or 'Cape Bretoners' (from Nova Scotia).

It took several minutes for the ship's crew to respond to the situation, but order was eventually restored.

On a positive note, the band 'Buddy Wasisname and the Other Fellers' were unfazed as they continued to play their usual set in the bar lounge throughout the ordeal.
