M/S Estonia 25 years ago

September 28, 2019


M/S Estonia has been  built 1980, so it was not in bad condition. But , I think, The selected route was like  to chose   a “Bermuda “, the uncertainty, of Baltic Sea, in a big storm,  waves 4 – 10 meters from  some  unsuitable  directions. The ship  before ( Viking Sally)  had a route , mostly among the archipelago of Finland and  the  outer isles of  Stockholm, and the  stormy  channel from North to South was   quite a  short piece of the route (  normally only  4 hours high wave-  journey in  heavy crosswind at right angles).

The design of the ships to that kind of crosswind possibilities in  such a  lively traffic ( many cars , lorries, road trailer) should  be similar s  Stena Line has. They  go in  nearly everlasting crosswind and  stop going  if the cross wind  storm is  huge.

M/S Estonia  was not  suitable  to  a huge  cross  wind.  That my opinion.
