    I have noticed this, and no, I would never go on one if I could possibly avoid it.

    I take ferries all the time in the summer. traveling to Fire Island and mostly when I stay in the Hampton's and travel frm the north or south fork and shelter Island in between. Also whenever the urge comes to gamble we hop on board car in tow and make way for CT to Mohegan sun and Fox woods. No probs as of yet. *knock on wood*

    That's the equivalent of saying

    Ever notice that plane in America always crash into buildings or bridges always collapse....

    Use your Brain.... that might tell you why more passenger ships sink in remote island environments with tropical storms and far away from dense populations


    Than in a large continental land masses, where a passenger ship is in shallow water and never too far from dock or emergency services
