Fast-ferry Chenega struggles with winter weather

Winter weather has stopped the Chenega from sailing again. Gale-force winds kept the fast ferry from making today’s Juneau-Haines run. Wind also blocked Thursday’s Juneau-Sitka sailing. Today is at least the sixth time in as many weeks that rough weather kept the Chenega at the dock.  But ferry General Manager John Falvey says there are no plans to take the ship off winter sailings.
