Coastal Reanaisannce Out of Service

Propeller Problem Causes Delays

The local daily reported that the new BC Ferry the Coastal Renaissance encountered mechanical issues with the propeller on Tuesday afternoon causing a backlog at Departure Bay Terminal.

The Queen of Coquitlam, the Queen of Cowichan and the Queen of Oak Bay were brought into service to alleviate the backlog which by the 4:15 sailing was reduced to a one sailing wait.

A BC Ferry spokesman could give no estimate as to when the new ferry would be back in service.

Does anyone know how fuel efficient these new ferries are? Does anyone know if the noise and vibratian issues are being resolved to the satisfaction of residents living near the terminal?
