About a month since it began its regular sailings, the Baynes Sounds Connector experienced a disruption in service last weekend, confirmed BC Ferries.
The newly-implemented cable ferry which runs between Buckley Bay and Denman Island, experienced an electronic issue with a control panel Saturday morning said Deborah Marshall, executive director of public affairs for the corporation.
She added the issue took several hours to sort out. Meanwhile, the MV Quinitsa, which formerly covered the route, sailed in place with no impact to customers.
The longest cable ferry in the world, the Baynes Sound Connector began sailing in February, replacing the self-propelled Quinitsa.
The ferry faced opposition in recent years from residents of Denman and Hornby islands, concerned about safety and reliability.
