JUNEAU- Repairs to the state ferry LeConte have been completed, and passenger service is scheduled to resume Thursday.
   
Department of transportation spokesman Jeremy Woodrow says the vessel went out of service Sunday evening after it was discovered that the bow thruster was not working properly. He says the problem prevented the ferry from getting to Gustavus and Angoon.
   
He says it was a "pretty easy fix" but one that required the ferry be in dry dock for the work.
