Cat Ferry Engine to be Repaired after Sailing Season

A problem with one of the Cat Ferry’s engines won’t be fixed until after the summer sailing season. Bay Ferries announced on Friday that one of the Cat’s four engines will remain offline – forcing slower travel times and one less crossing a week between Yarmouth and Portland, Maine. The Cat lost the use of it’s starboard outer main engine on June 28th. Bay Ferries Ltd says the engine’s manufacturer will cover the cost of the repairs. The Cat has been experiencing a resurgence this year, carrying more than twice as many passengers last month than they did in June of 2016.
