Short delay for new Arrow Lake ferry

The commissioning of the new $27 million ferry at Nakusp is delayed for about a month.

It was due to enter service next month.

But John Harding with ship builder Waterbridge Steel says there was a medical issue with the specialist sub-contractor looking after the propellers.

But work is underway again.

 

Lake trials will start in the coming weeks.

Harding figures the 80-vehicle, 250-passenger ferry should be working the Galena Bay-Shelter Bay route by June.
