Now where did we put those stupid signs?

I just bet Transit or the maritime authority is looking at ways to deploy pointless signs into Tory Channel after an investigation has found that The Venture, a 13m Nelson-based fishing vessel, grounded at the base of a cliff just north of Tipi Bay in the Marlborough Sounds while on the way from Picton to Oamaru on April 19 because the skipper was fricken asleep at the time.

Now if only there were signs urging skippers to get powernaps or to not sleep and drive this tragedy could have been avoided.
