How monny in crossing does th' watter bury. A contemporary observer noting the dangers of the ferry and the uncertain duration of the crossing wrote that it was "not to be hazarded by persons of weak nerves, and least of all by those who had been so thoughtless as to come on board without provisions, for to descend to a sporting phrase, it was a five to one chance that they were not the victims of hunger before they reached their destination" [Ref Lewenhak, Sheila. Steamships and Shipbuilders of the Industrial Revolution]
