A proposal to charge the Ketchikan Shipyard property tax or an equivalent payment in lieu of taxes was postponed by the Ketchikan Gateway Borough Assembly on Monday.
The ferry Aurora is out of service a week earlier than expected after a crack was found in its hull.
It’s official: The Ketchikan Shipyard will build two new ferries for the State of Alaska over the next few years.
The ferry LeConte will return to service at least a day later than expected. Thursday sailings have been canceled due to ongoing bow-thruster repairs.
Southeast Alaska’s maritime economy provides more than a quarter of the wages paid in the region.
The LeConte will resume service Sunday, June 16, but about 5½ hours behind schedule. The Malaspina will sail Juneau to Gustavus roundtrip on Saturday night to alleviate stranded travelers in Gustavus. The ferry will depart Auke Bay at 10 .p.m and return in time to sail Lynn Canal as scheduled Sunday morning.
