St. Johns River Ferry out of service
September 17, 2012
The St. Johns River Ferry is out of service until further notice. Riders should expect the ferry to be out of service for at least the next several days.
Stress fractures have been discovered in the hull plate of the ferry. A small amount of water is seeping into the vessel and although the water is easily pumped out, the US Coast Guard has instructed that the ferry be removed from service.
Follow-up inspections and a repair plan are being developed. It is expected that the ferry will be taken out of the water for repairs.
We will continue to send out regular updates.
