As of today the updated ferry schedule does not show any scheduled ferry to Pelican in November. I realize the LeConte is out of service, but Pelican folks have been being put off for the last three days while it is supposedly getting out of drydock. If the printed schedule online is correct they will not even be provided service once it is back to service.
There are people here with rotting produce because of the lack of foresight in establishing a schedule that fell on the heels of the boat getting out of dry dock. This is an outrage. It is also one more example of how the Alaska Marine Highway System, which all of the residents of Southeast have counted on like people in Chicago count on the Metra, is being sunk.
