Marine Disaster: Thirteen People Died When Boat Sunk Due To Small Deficiencies

TASA ID: 674

After 7 minutes in the water, the "Miss Majestic" sunk in less than half a minute in 51 feet of water, resulting in 13 deaths.  The "duck" has one engine that drives both sets of wheels and the propeller shaft.  Two days before the accident, the driver noticed water in the bilges and took the "duck" to the shop.  After the accident, it was found that the rubber seal of one of the shafts was improperly installed, allowing it to leak water into the bilges, but the "duck" was not tested after it left the shop, prior to the accident.
