Notice: The MV Veteran is opearting on the One Vessel All Year Round schedule see link below. 

Updates and additional service notes can be found on the Marine Services dashboard at http://www.tw.gov.nl.ca/ferryservices/index.stm.

Note November 25th, 2016:  Please be advised that the Veteran requires ramp repair work.  This has been scheduled to take place during the night of the 28th November.  The contractor expects this work to be completed in time for the Veteran to start service on the morning of the 29th November.

As a precautionary measure, the Earl W. Winsor will be crewed and will arrive on site during Sunday in Fogo, to permit final certification requirements to take on passengers during that day.  Winsor will be the overnight emergency response vessel in the event of a medical evacuation requirement, should the need arise during the night of the 28th November.  In the event the ramp repair work is not completed as expected on the morning of the 29th November,  the Winsor will enter service instead and perform the same schedule as is being done presently by the Veteran, until such time the repair work is completed, and once the Veteran resumes service, the Earl W. Winsor will depart.
