Kootenay Lake’s ferry service will be limited to one vessel until at least next week.
The MV Balfour, which runs between the Balfour and Kootenay Bay ferry terminals, is entering its fourth weekend out of service. A spokesperson for the transportation ministry previously told the Star the ferry has mechanical issues caused by a clutch failure.
An update on drivebc.ca said the ferry isn’t tentatively expected back until Monday, Aug. 19.
The MV Osprey 2000, the bigger of the two ferries on Kootenay Lake, is still running.
The 65-year-old Balfour is due for replacement in 2022.
