SSA ferries have morning delays

If you’re wondering why your ferry was late Tuesday morning due to “unforeseen circumstances,” there is a simple answer.

According to Steamship Authority spokesman Sean Driscoll, the MV Woods Hole “had delays getting going on its first trip due to late crew.”

That had a domino effect delaying the 7 am departure from Vineyard Haven by 35 minutes and delaying the 8:15 crossing from Woods Hole until about 8:40 am.
