Broken Fuel Line Cancels Ferry Promo Trip

Wednesday, October 19, 2005
According to News10 NBC, Rochester's fast ferry ran into some problems on Lake Ontario Tuesday causing the cancellation of a planned trip. Bay Ferries officials’ say the fast ferry was on a special promotional trip to Toronto and halfway through the trip, the captain decided to turn the ship around and head back to the Port of Rochester. Officials say high waves on Lake Ontario affected a fuel line Monday and that caused the ship not to have full power on its trip Tuesday. Crewmembers also reported 12-ft. swells on the lake. Because of the weather conditions and the fuel line problem, the captain made the decision to return to port. The fuel line is being replaced. β€œIt is unfortunate. The ship has had highly successful scheduling and very few problems in terms of keeping schedule and keeping the number of crossings. Today was an issue that they decided was most prudent to return,” said Ed Doherty from the Rochester Ferry Corporation. The ferry will be back on its regular schedule Wednesday.
