Suppose now that the captain has a ship, has set a fee, announced his
service in the Olympia Times and with
post, and is now
ready to ferry passengers. What should he tell them? How will the
Passengers should travel to the port the ferry will be arriving at and
wait ferry ship
When the ship arrives at port, the captain should order
eject his current load of passengers, then
ferry to signal any
passengers waiting in port that they may now board.
Note that passengers should not use
wait ship to wait for the
ferry. Otherwise, they will attempt to
board as soon as the ship
reaches the port. The captain's
unload order may not have
executed at this point. In this case,
board orders might fail
because there won't be any room to enter the ship until the existing
load of passengers has disembarked.
