    I know, it's a mismanagement in the system. The Kennicott will be in Southeast and the only other boat running a full schedule is the Malispina. 7 of the 11 boats will be in a reduced schedule or yard schedule through the beginning of January. Believe me, it's a headache that some of us really do depend on. They want all boats running all summer for tourists, and lay them all up at the same time. Ketchikan ASD will be full and at least one boat going to Portland for an extensive overhall. But hey, the Chenega will be running in Prince William Sound this winter, Cordova should be jumpin'.

    There went my plan to save some money and have a vehicle while over there! Are there going to be any earlier runs to Kodiak than the 31st?

    Hmm. Hopefully this won't affect Cordova during the same month.

    looks like Kodiak Rain will have to get his boat going for shuttle services...

    Talk about mismanagement. Six thousand gallons of fuel per day and it will be hauling 5 cars each way. Sounds like a bargain . At least we're keeping the fuel company in Cordova happy. Good luck moose hunting Ethan.

    Well, Adam if it makes you feel any warmer, the Chenega will only be running 4 days a week with only one port a day. Have fun in South East this winter and get those tests done with. Mismanagement is right. The work schedule is less than admirable, not looking forward to the second half of winter schedules after January.


    As for everyone else, here is an easy to find schedule from AHMS website. https://www.dot.state.ak.us/oars/res...lendarFM.amhsf
    You find either the port, or the boat or the month and you can see who is going where. If the box is blank on the calender, no boats are there or the boat isn't running.
