While the 2016 Schoodic Ferry season was full of successes, it also held several challenges. To continue operating in 2017, the Schoodic Ferry needs your help.
In June 2016, the Schoodic Ferry vessel, Katie Grace, experienced two rounds of vandalism. While no suspect was ever identified by law enforcement officials, in October 2016, a third round of suspicious activity occurred, this time to the vessel’s mooring line. During these events, the Schoodic Ferry vessel experienced damage to both transmissions, wiring, steering gear, communications devices, struts, and propellers. While the vessel’s crew has managed to repair the steering gear, wiring, and communication devices, both transmissions must be rebuilt, a strut repaired, and both propellers reconditioned before the ferry can resume operating in 2017.
Our crew is experienced, and ready and willing to go to work to bring the Schoodic Ferry back to working order in time for the 2017 season – now we simply require the funding to do so!
Help us show the world the difference one big yellow boat can make!
