One day after another freight ferry missed trips because of mechanical issues, two crossings of the MV Katama between Woods Hole and Oak Bluffs have been canceled for the same reason, according to an alert from the Steamship Authority.

The 11:05 am and 12:20 pm crossings of the Katama are canceled.

According to a text message from SSA spokesman Sean Driscoll, the issue is a “malfunctioning engine turbo.”
