With engine repaired, Aurora to set sail today

Posted: Wednesday, November 10, 2010

Technicians Thursday reinstalled a repaired anchor windlass motor on the ferry Aurora, enabling it to sail today on its regular run to Kake and Angoon.

The ferry was disabled last week when the windlass motor failed. It is needed for safety and morring the vessel.

Other vessels, including the Allen Marine's St. Aquilina, filled in while the Aurora was sidelined.

The Aurora is scheduled to depart Juneau at 7 a.m. today, and return Thursday at 2:15 a.m.
