Nova Star out, Bay Ferries in.. return of an oldie?

So after eating 32million dollars, the Nova Star is out, and Bay Ferries is now negotiating a contract to take over the Portland to Yarmouth  ferry run.

This is Probably a good thing – Bay operates the Digby/Saint John run, as well as the Northumberland Ferries from Pictou to PEI. They also previously ran the CAT on this route, prior to its Cancellation.

They will need a Suitable boat, and one that is immediately available. The NovaStar will presumably be available, though if NovaStar Couldnt run it profitably, who knows if Bay Can. There is however a Ferry available Locally. The Princess of Acadia. Recently retired from the Digby/Saint John run, she is owned by the feds, but was previously operated by Bay. She is available, possibly for charter or Purchase, and a known commodity to Bay.
