    DescriptionYip Tsz-leung, associate professor of the Department of Logistics and Maritime Studies, Hong Kong Polytechnic University, said turbojet ferries usually sail at 35 to 40 nautical miles per hour, equal to 70-80 kilometer per hour for an automobile. Thus it is highly possible that passengers would be thrown off their seats if a sudden braking occurs. Yip encouraged all passengers using such ferries to fasten their seat belt.
