Spirit of BC Ferry Drydocked for 10 days
As a result of the high winds experienced on Saturday 26 April welding repairs to the rubbing strake on the side of the Spirit ship have caused the ferry to be out of service for approximately 10 days.
While the strake damage, which is the ferry equivalent of a damaged vehicle fender is being repaired, BC Ferries have moved the Coastal Renaissance from Swartz Bay to Tsawwassen and additional sailings have been added to the Queen of New Westminster ferry, to better accommodate passengers.
