When the sheep don't disembark fast enough

Tueday 6:15pm: Starflyte docking at Pier 2B left again before all passengers had disembarked. It caused an almighty ruckus, crashing gang planks and screaming passengers but the skipper went merrily on his way to his dinner break. Which means the boat is out of service too, with an even smaller vessel now having to do the 8:00am ex-Waiheke sailing. Is Fullers' staff pissed off, or just instructed not to give a damn about passengers any more?

The same boat travelled to the city a few days later with the chain unattached across the gangplank. This meant that anyone could have walked onto the gangplank at the back of the boat. You would have thought that they might have learnt a bit about improving safety, but no, they were too busy serving coffee to think of checking what happens outside.
