BC Ferries said regular sailings on the Comox-Powell River route will resume Friday morning following a mechanical difficulty that cancelled all sailings Thursday afternoon and night.
At around 1 p.m. on Thursday, BC Ferries announced that the Salish Raven had a problem with its aft thruster. This led to the cancellation of the 3:25 p.m. and 7:10 p.m. out of Little River and 5:15 p.m. and 8:45 p.m. out of Westview.
Until the mechanical issue is fixed, the Salish Orca will be used on the route starting on Friday.

The Salish Raven made its inaugural sailing last year and replaced the Queen of Nanaimo.
