Ferry refit up in air


(The Bowen Island Undercurrent, October 21st 1994, p1: with permission)

The on again, off again refit for the Queen of Capilano is off again.

Last week, B.C. Ferry officials announced the refit was being delayed. This week they said it was back on again. But just before the Undercurrent deadlines Thursday the corporation put the refit back on hold.

The Queen of Capilano was to be replaced in service by the smaller capacity Powell River Queen. But the Powell River Queen has not completed its own refit and is unavailable to sub for the Capilano. As a result, the Capilanos's refit is on hold until further notice.
