Boat crash.

A MISSING pin worth a few pence is being blamed for last week's accident in British Columbia, Canada, in which a ferry crushed 22 boats. The boats at a marina were destroyed when the 460-foot ferry Queen of Oak Bay lost power on its approach to Horseshoe Bay and the captain steered the vessel away from the terminal.

The missing pin allowed a nut to come off a device linking the controls on the bridge to one of the vessel's engines
