Tour DUKW sinks

Recommended Posts

Whoopsie! But good to see safety procedures were at hand and passengers were offloaded without a hitch. Reassuring to see that with the correct contingency plans in place a vehicle that at best is 20 years old, at worst 70 years old can still operate daily. :) Alec.

Once again good to see that all passengers and crew are safe.....

 

The 'Duckmarine' website includes the following statement:

 

'making a dramatic “SPLASHDOWN” in the Salthouse Dock. It’s the start of an amazing dockland adventure, ending at the Albert Dock. It’s a trip you’ll never forget!'

 

I'll say!

 

Cheers

 

Paul
