Treacherous waters

This is how treacherous the waters are around here on Replot. Just over a week a go this boat which was ferrying 22 passangers to one of the northern Islands for a day cruise sank after hitting a submerged rock. The captain who has been sailing these water for many years running the same trip apparentely became distracted while looking at his nautical maps and slightly veered off course and the resulting sinking took place. Fortunately everyone on board was rescued before the boat completely sank........and visiting fisherman wonder why they need a guide here.
