The harbour ferry Christopher Stannix Sailed for Sambro to be Dry Docked.

Halifax Transit Issued a press release yesterday about ferry schedule changes “due to ongoing mechanical assessment of one of its vessels, the Christopher Stannix”
the release continues “Halifax Transit staff conducted an initial assessment of the issue earlier this week, and have determined that the vessel must be brought out of the water to conduct a complete evaluation. It’s anticipated that the vessel will be out of service for several weeks to accommodate this work”
Sounds like a problem with one of the Voith Drives. No word on where she will be dry docked.
