Damaged ferry waiting for new propeller
Repairs of the "Sjernarøy" have almost been finished, but Norled still has to wait for new parts for the propulsion system. It will take about four weeks before the ferry is back in operation. The "Sjernarøy" had run aground at North Hidle in Sjernarøy on Oct 12. None of the 43 passengers had been seriously injured, but the ferry took in water. The "Sjernarøy" docked at GMC Yard at Buøy in Stavanger. The damage to the hull was less than expected. The repairs will be completed early next week, but operators kept waiting for the delivery of new propellers and stock from Finland. There was no final delivery date yet, but the parts were expected during the second week in November at the earliest. They will then have to be mounted and adjusted. The chartered ferry "Rygerfjell» only takes about half as many cars as the "Sjernarøy". Norled had waited three days to insert the reserve ferry following its tender.
