    Couldn't find the official investigation report in English, so I'll guess it's only available in Bengali, which I can't Google, so till someone finds something better we'll have to do with this article and the recommendations in it...

    Article about the presentation of the official investigation report of the MV Coco-4 and MV Al Helal-1 accidents.

    Note: the MV Coco-4 sank near Bhola, the MV Al Helal-1 sank near Kishoreganj, and they're both alternately called launch or ferry in the article.

    Since we don't have the full investigation report and the Bangladeshi law at hand I'll guess we have to assume they're more complete than this article and besides the mentioned length vs height issue also require something about beam vs height, cg height, stability, etc... But then, what good is that if the Bangladeshis don't enforce their own laws . . :rolleyes:

    Many people don't realize that boats are not like wagons that you can just load them up until the axle breaks or the mule can't pull anymore. Here in Florida a 45 Sportsfisher sunk when the captain decided to take 15+ people on the boat. The weight shifted off they went people died. These ferries take this to the extreme. I am surprised more accidents like this don't happen.
