Temporary Vessel Replacement

Posted March 02, 2006

March 5 - April 7

The Quinsam will be out of service on the Gabriola Island route from Sunday, March 5 through Friday, April 7 for annual refit. 

During this period the Bowen Queen will be the replacement vessel. 

Although the Bowen Queen has a similar car and passenger capacity to the Quinsam, commercial customers please note that vehicles over 10 tonnes GVW (10,000 kg) are restricted to centre lane loading only on the Bowen Queen. 

This means there will be reduced capacity for commercial vehicles travelling on the Gabriola Island route while the Quinsam is in refit. 

BC Ferries looks forward to returning the Quinsam to service on Saturday, April 8.
