BC Ferries is removing one of its vessels for repairs.

The Queen of Burnaby serving the Comox-Powell River route will go into dry dock on Wednesday, February 8th to repair a propeller hub.

Ferries spokesperson Deborah Marshall says the MV Island Sky will serve the route. She notes there won’t be any scheduling conflicts as a result of the repair work.

Marshall says the Bowen Queen will assume service on the Earls Cove-Saltery Bay route while the Island Sky is serving the Comox-Powell River run.

Marshall says the Queen of Burnaby should be back in service within a week.

An additional round-trip will also be added during the Family Day long weekend from Friday, February 10th through Monday, February 13th.

This will include a 1:50 PM sailing from Saltery Bay and a 2:50 PM sailing from Earls Cove.
