Update on the Return of the M.V. Del Norte

From the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District …

A contract was awarded in September 2009 for the installation of a new propulsion system for re-powering and dry-docking of the M.V. Del Norte. Work was expected to be completed in May. This has been delayed due to a defect uncovered in the valve seats of the new engines. The manufacturer is making the necessary changes before the vessel is delivered back to Larkspur. We are now estimating a June delivery. Golden Gate Ferry appreciates your continued patience.
