10001 small/10001-0.jpgGENERAL CONDITION: GOOD. THE VESSEL BEGAN LIFE IN 1982 WITH A SET OF DETROIT 671'S DEISEL PROPULSION ENGINES AND RECEIVED A CLEAN AIR GRANT IN 1995 TO CONVERT TO COMPRESSED NATURAL GAS (CNG) FUEL. IT WAS THEN USED AS A DEMONSTRATION VESSEL USING NATURAL GAS AS A FUEL SOURCE WITH LIMITED DUTIES AS A PASSENGER FERRY. REFUELING THE VESSEL WAS PROBLEMATIC BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF REFUELING STATIONS WHICH LIMITED THE USE OF THE VESSEL AND IT WAS CONVERTED BACK TO DEISEL FUEL IN DECEMBER OF 2010 WITH THE ADDITION OF THE DETROIT 60 SERIES DEISELS. IT WAS NOT UNTIL JANUARY OF 2011 THAT THE VESSEL WAS RECERTIFIED AND PLACED BACK IN SERVICE STRICTLY AS A PASSENGER FERRY. THE VESSEL IS WELL MAINTAINED AND HAS A CURRENT COI CERTIFICATE.
