The timber piles likely were soaked in creosote, which is an amazing marine preservative but also carcinogenic and pretty nasty in general. There is a special landfill on the Lower Mainland, I believe, where they bury that sort of stuff. The name of the place is escaping me.

Chicks and ducks and geese better scurry

Did the Clipper get permission to use VV's name?

Victoria Clipper puts Vancouver passenger ferry plans on hold

The ship is slated to be out of refit in the fall just in time for the storm season, so that should be a good test.

Mechanical problems on last nights 7 pm sailing lead to cancellation. 5 hour journey via Tsawwassen to Seattle. Don't know if they are back on schedule today.

More Vancouver-to-Victoria direct by sea: Clipper’s Victoria-Vancouver ferry to set sail in spring, and carry a whopping 579 passengers...
No prices yet though...

Clipper US pricing to/from Seattle
Do you think the prices will be similar for the Van-Vic run?

Hard to know. It'll be 30 minutes faster than V2V if it will be able to do the speeds it wants. I think there might be wake issues. I recall that was a problem with BCF fast-cats.

It's a lot smaller than a fast cat though. I've been on a very rough fast catamaran ferry in the Seychelles. Fun stuff but hold onto your lunch. Using the toilet was a real adventure.
At 45 seconds in their are some folks appear to be hanging on the top rear deck dealing with lunch.
At that speed if you fall overboard you are going to be a long way back before they find you.
