UPDATE: Grand Manan Ferry Service Back Today

Folks in Grand Manan can get off the island later today Coastal Transport will have another ferry in place while the Adventure is broken down.

President Murray Ryder tells CHSJ News they noticed trouble with the Adventure when heading from Black's Harbour to North Head, Grand Manan.

He says during the trip they experienced a problem with the ship's turbo charger.   He says there is a fracture in the lube/oil distribution system.

Ryder says the plan is to get the Grand Manan 5 in service by 530pm.  He tells CHSJ News vehicles are starting to line up with people eager to get home.

As for when the Adventure might be running again, Ryder says it hard to say now as they are working with a parts supplier in Virginia to get the items they need.
