I hope they get back in operation soon. I think this sounds like something the locals in particular need.

In a former life I was a power boater. I have replaced a lot of out drives. If they need one they should order three. The first time I saw pictures of this boat I knew that would be an Achilles heal. They are very efficient and very fragile.

Well even after over 40 years of boating here -- "I don't know where all the rocks Are, but I sure know where they are Not"

Thumbs up to what Capn Jay said

How much time does that ferry trip take?

I have always felt a stern drive combines the worst features of a inboard with the worst features of a outboard. If you want a inboard get a inboard. If you want a outboard get a outboard. Don't try and mate them!!
