PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT THERE IS A REPAIR REQUIRED TO ONE OF THE GENERATORS ON THE VEHICLE FERRY M.V. SANDY GRAHAM WHICH WILL REQUIRE THE VESSEL TO BE TIED UP UNTIL THE PART IS REMOVED. THE PART REQUIRED TO BE REMOVED WILL THEN BE SENT OFF FOR REPAIRS.
WE ALSO PLAN TO UTILIZE THE TIE UP TIME TO PERFORM SOME REQUIRED PAINTING OF THE VESSEL (***Weather Permitting***) AND SOME OTHER ITEMS THAT REQUIRE ATTENTION WILL BE ADDRESSED. PLEASE PLAN AHEAD TO MOVE VEHICLES WHERE REQUIRED IN ADVANCE OF THE TIE UP. WE ARE LOOKING AT A POTENTIAL TWO DAY TIE UP OF THE SANDY GRAHAM BOTH WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY OF NEXT WEEK DEPENDING HOW QUICKLY THE PAINTING CAN BE COMPLETED.
THE INDIAN MAIDEN WILL OPERATE THE SCHEDULE UNTIL REPAIRS AND PAINTING ARE COMPLETE
Wednesdays repairs will occur at Cedar Point dock and Thursday if required will occur at home port on Christian Island.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED PATIENCE.
