The Steamship Authority canceled two trips Wednesday morning, the 7 am ferry to Vineyard Haven and the 8:15 ferry to Woods Hole, due to mechanical issues on the vessel Martha’s Vineyard. “Our maintenance crews are evaluating a reduction gear pressure switch on the MV,” Steamship Authority spokesperson Sean Driscoll said.
Driscoll told The Times at 9:14 am in a text that the Martha’s Vineyard was operational again.
Based on data shared during a Steamship Authority board meeting on Tuesday morning, this would make the number of ferry trip cancellations due to mechanical issues on the Vineyard route 37 this year.
