You don't think Kurt will run it earlier this year?

I remember he ran it last year sometime in mid April and we got slammed by a snowstorm and were stranded there until Monday...maybe, juuuuuust maybe, that will happen again!!

and Gardner, I can't wait to stomp you (again) in shuffleboard this year Smile

Very Happy I know this is a dry dock year inspection.. as per Curt. So when yo folks on the West side see him chugging North.. He is heading to dry dock.. I think he goes North for dry Dock, possibly South, but I am not sure..
Gibby do you know anything ?

Yes. Regular ferry service, on a schedule, always starts May 1st. The weather has nothing to do with the schedule as it used to. It is not the 1950's or 1960's any more.

I have not seen a new schedule or new prices yet.
