jeez, Ford needs to hire a new shipping company

The good new is that it didn't sink. Its possible that a good number of the cars will have repairable damage if they were properly secured.

Must've been someone working for (insert rival manufacturer's name here) that was responsible for trying to adjust the ballast. "Whatever you do, don't press dees button!"

Yeah, I remember when that shipment of Volvo XC90's went down in the North Atlantic, I think it was last year.
