State to sell two of its ferries
The state will sell two of its “fast” ferry vessels, the Fairweather and Chenega, officials at the Department of Transportation and Public Facilities said. The Fairweather is to be laid up at Ward Cove, in Ketchikan. Its crew is being reassigned
to other vessels where there are vacancies, so the action will not result in layoffs, for now at least. Completion of the new ferry Tazlina, which will operate in northern Lynn Canal in Southeast, makes the Fairweather no longer needed. The Tazlina is slower but it will carry more vehicles.
