Somebody really screwed up here to set up a situation where trips could be suddenly canceled. I'd like to know more details. For me this means driving an unplanned extra 3 days and about 1000 miles, some lost work time and the risks of driving the AK highway this time of year. For Prince Rupert business, you have lost some customers. Please complain!

Many thanks to the Canadians for the use of the B.C. Ferry Docks while this port problem is taken care of.
The Alaska Marine Highway System should remember this kindness from our Canadian neighbors.
