Another Delay for Tustumena
The state ferry Tustumena's return to service has been delayed once again.
KODIAK- The state ferry Tustumena's return to service has been delayed once again.
Kodiak Island Borough Mayor Jerome Selby said Thursday that the ferry will remain out of service until at least mid-October, the fifth delay since the ferry entered drydock for repairs last November.
The latest delay, according to Kemp's email, is because Seward Ship's Drydock installed plating this summer that was too thin. It has to be cut out and replaced.
Selby says residents will be able to use the ferry Kennicott until the Tustumena returns.
State officials last said the ferry could return as of Oct. 1.
