Taku down again due to ongoing mechanical issues

Petersburg sailing canceled for today

The ferry Taku continues to have mechanical problems, causing further cancellations of its planned sailings.

It was to return to service Tuesday after missing Sunday and Monday sailings. However, the five-decade old vessel is again out of service for repairs to ongoing mechanical problems, and a sailing set for 2 p.m. Tuesday was canceled, according to a release from the Alaska Marine Highway System.

The 352-foot long Taku is expected to resume its schedule and sail from Kake to Juneau and Petersburg on Thursday, the release states.
