Ferry Haul Out Scheduled for Spring, 2023
The next scheduled ferry haul-out is planned in March/April, 2023. We do not have exact dates yet; the project still needs to go out for bid. The vessel's Certificate of Inspection mandates the ferry go out of service for maintenance no later than March 31, 2023. It is estimated the outage will be 21-28 days, during which time passenger-only service will be provided. We should be able to announce final dates for next year's haul-out later this summer. We will keep you posted.
What kind of work items are scheduled?
During the next haul-out, it is business as usual with routine maintenance expected.
Work items scheduled for 2023 include spot painting of the hull, house, bulwarks, void spaces, and car deck, routine service on all major machinery and equipment, stripping and cleaning of fuel tanks, other minor repairs and maintenance items, and completion of the United States Coast Guard (USCG) dry dock credit.
The last USCG dry dock credit was completed in June, 2021.
