French Ferry Holed
Wednesday, March 29, 2000
A French ferry was badly holed in France's Channel harbor of Calais after being hurled onto the jetty by high winds, owners Sea-France said. No-one was injured on the ferry Monet which had sailed from the British port of Dover. Passengers and vehicles landed safely. Divers carried out emergency repairs and put in pumps to keep the ferry afloat. The company said it was not in danger of sinking but would remain in Calais for several weeks for repairs.
