The Alaska Marine Highway System ferry Tustumena sailed a short distance across Resurrection Bay from moorings at Seward Ship’s Drydock to relocate at the Alaska Railroad cruise ship terminal Sept. 26.

The Alaska Marine Highway System ferry Tustumena sailed a short distance across Resurrection Bay from moorings at Seward Ship’s Drydock to relocate at the Alaska Railroad cruise ship terminal for finishing work. The Tustumena was refloated Sept. 26 for the first time in 10 months after problems with scheduled repair work kept it in drydock. United States Coast Guard inspections revealed that welds had not properly secured replacement hull plating and work had to be stripped and redone. Additionally, AMHS submitted over 100 unanticipated change orders to the original contract involving other aspects of the 50-year-old vessel’s facilities.
