Car Drops off an Australian Ferry

The original ferries to Masirah Island in Oman are Landing Craft Tank (LCT) type roll-on roll-off ferries. Their shallow flat base makes them ideal to navigate the sand bars between the Oman mainland and Masirah Island. In Australia the crossing to Fraser Island is a similar distance, around 20kms,  and sea condition. Fortunately on the many crossings Ive made to Masirah Island Ive never seen a vehicle drop off – like this one to Fraser Island Australia.

Clearly the ramp wasn’t elevated even slightly – and the vehicle’s hand brake wasn’t engaged. One to remember for next time.
