UPDATED: More mechanical trouble cancels BC Ferry sailings

BC Ferry Queen Of New WestMinster

The BC Ferry schedule got back on track after two canceled sailings Sunday morning.

It was because of more mechanical problems with the Queen of New Westminster on the Swartz Bay to Tsawwassen route.

BC Ferries says the problem was with one of the ship's controllable pitch propellers. Two sailings were canceled as a specialized technician looked into the problem but the ship returned in time for the 12 o'clock sailing from Tsawwassen.

Last weekend, several sailings were called off due to pitch propeller troubles with the same vessel.

BC Ferries said customers with reservations on the cancelled sailings will be refunded their reservation fee.
