According to an email from The Steamship Authority, the M/V Woods Hole will be out of service on Friday Feb, 9 and part of Saturday, Feb. 10. The vessel will undergo repairs which require that it be dry docked.

The freight vessel M/V Sankaty will operate in place of the M/V Woods Hole on Friday February 9, until 3:45 pm on Saturday February 10. As a result, passenger capacity and amenities will be limited.

The M/V Sankaty will then operate in place of the M/V Nantucket from 5:00 pm on Saturday  until 7:30 pm on Sunday Feb. 11, while the M/V Nantucket’s bow door is repaired. The passenger capacity and amenities will be limited for these trips as well on Saturday and Sunday.
