JUNEAU - The state ferry Tustumena is back in service after repairs were completed.
The ship had a vehicle lift malfunction on Sept. 14 while offloading in Seldovia. The ship went to Homer for repairs.
Four new lift cables were installed, and the Coast Guard authorized it to sail on Friday.
It departed Saturday for a trip down the Aleutian chain. It's scheduled to begin its eastbound return trip from Dutch Harbor on Wednesday morning.
