On April 9, 1968, 700 people piled on to The Wahine, a New Zealand ferry boat, the most common form of inter-island transportation. The Wahine’s story is told utilising interviews with survivors, rare television footage and re-enactments. The innocent passengers and crew had no reason to suspect they were on a collision course with the worst storm New Zealand had ever seen. Early the next morning, the ship’s radar failed as 40-foot waves and winds of 90 knots pummelled the ferry. Having lost power, the ship slammed into the jagged rocks of Barrett’s Reef. Rescue ships battled with limited visibility but couldn’t make it to the ferry and the passengers had to abandon the ship.
