Temporary docking of cable ferry

Regular warranty maintenance will put Baynes Sound Connector out of service for four weeks

  • Sep. 28, 2016 11:00 a.m.

BC Ferries’ cable ferry Baynes Sound Connector will be removed from service between Oct. 24 to Nov. 19 for warranty maintenance as defined in the contract with the building shipyard. During this period, the MV Quinitsa will provide service with no change in service level or schedule.

Scheduled warranty maintenance is a normal feature of new vessel implementation and is not unique to the Baynes Sound Connector. The out-of-service period allows shipyard personnel safe access to the vessel without disrupting customers. Planned work includes paint repairs, equipment servicing and other activities that cannot be accommodated during an overnight shut down. The work will be conducted locally at the Buckley Bay terminal.
