The hellish morning commute

Quickcat lost steering on its way from town. Commuters from failed 7:20am sailing ex Matiatia joined the 8:00am sailing on Superflyte. Probably overloaded. Upon arrival at Pier 2 Auckland electricals for pneumatic gangway failed – heavy rain - finally worked at 8:45am, passengers late to catch connections.

Quick Quick Slow
