The Palabora has stopped pinging its location as of the 6th.  We have no idea where Clipper V is.

Clipper V has arrived!

 

She is currently being towed backwards into position at the Clipper/Coho terminal.

Does the new boat have engines that work or do they have a tug that tows them around?

They tow it backward to roll back the odometer.

Saves a lot of time when docking too as they don't need to turn the boat around.

Do those tugs get up to planing speeds?

The former clipper has been sitting at the Wharf street docks since it was sold. This morning it was moved to the International Marina.

Clipper suspending service between Victoria and Seattle until April 2021

https://www.timescol...2021-1.24168334

Clipper Navigation has decided to suspend service between Victoria and Seattle until next spring, leaving the company with only six people on the payroll.

 

Citing the extension of the closed border between Canada and the U.S., continuation of the quarantine policy and overall coronavirus uncertainty, the company said it had no choice but to shut down all operations.

 

“We wholeheartedly agree with the steps and health precautions taken by Canadian and U.S. government officials to date to reduce the risk of coronavirus transmission through non-essential travel,” said David Gudgel, chief executive of Clipper.

 

“Our intent in suspending operations is to hopefully allow ample time to pass so that we may return to service next spring when travel across the border is safe and welcomed once again.”

 

The company has extended the suspension of service until April 30, noting the loss of any summer operations makes year-round operations for Clipper in 2020 unrealistic.

now that’s a serious blow to tourism more so than cruise ships. the clipper regularly brings us hundreds of new tourists every single day with many overnighting.
