Last week, Amherst Islander was making its way along the river near Clayton when the vessel had steering issues. The crew had to act quickly and drop anchor before drifting too far out of the channel. The USCG responded and the ferry was moved by Clayton's Abaco Marine, to the Thousand Islands Regional Dock, where it still remains today.
Amherst Islander is reportedly headed for Honduras.
Also, this morning I got word from a contributor who spotted another ferry off Cape Vincent. The 1957 built vechicle ferry Dalmig was anchored off shore for unknown reasons. The vessel is listed as for sale by Heddle Marine and priced at $120,000. (Listing)
We have a message into Heddle to check on the status of Dalmig.
