Luke v. 1-11: Factum est autem cum turbae irruereut in eum et ipse stabat secus stagnum Gennesareth: et vidit duas naves.... Ascendens in unam navem quae erat Simonis... dixit ad Simonem, Duc in altum, et laxate retia vestra in capturam. Et cum hoc fecissent concluserunt piscium multitudinem copiosam.... Et impleverunt ambas naviculas ita ut mergerentur.

A ferry is set up to transport men over an unfordable river, and it might be truly said that "extra navem nulla salus;" there is no other safe way, speaking generally, of getting over; but the ferryman has got the plague, and if you go in the boat with him, you will catch it and die.
