Matanuska delayed in Wrangell today

Posted: May 9, 2012 - 12:41pm

The M/V Matanuska, the same vessel that struck the Ocean Beauty Seafoods dock in Petersburg Monday, is delayed in Wrangell today due to a mechanical issue with the boat’s transfer bridge.

This news was released today in a notice from the Alaska Marine Highway System.

The release went on to state that the Matanuska will remain in Wrangell until they are able to transit Wrangell Narrows; the vessel is expected to arrive in Petersburg at 2 p.m.

According to the AMHS, staff will contact affected passengers. For more information, contact the AMHS central reservations office or your local terminal by dialing 1-800-642-0066.

For an updated schedule, please see the M/V Matanuska sailing calendar for May 2012.
