Chemainus ferry damaged by log

Those travelling between Chemainus and Penelakut Island may have noticed the ferry is still running — but being pulled by a tug assist.

That’s because the MV Kuper was damaged by a log in the water Wednesday, Feb. 9.

The log damaged the right angle dry, a BC Ferries representative said.

The vessel is only running a half hour late but will be out of the water by 8 p.m. Thursday.

BC Ferries is bringing in another ship, the MV Klitsa.

The MV Kuper will be back on route in about a week.
