Cars lost at sea

A total of 64 cars were aboard cargo ship Astongate traveling from Toyama, Japan, to Vladivostok, Russia. After the storm hit the ship — 52 of them ended up at the bottom of the sea. Whoever bought those cars signed a document allowing the cargo to be transported on ship’s deck at their own risk.

    You would think that the carrier would take due diligence and secure them properly to the deck. They don’t even look as if they’ve been chained down at all. It’s common for the sea to have storms or get rough at times, frozen deck included. Sheesh. I’d be pissed.

    Moral of the story: Always engage the parking brake…

    Obviously clunkers being shipped to Siberia for a quick profit – all over 10 years old and under $1000 in Japan.
