New ETA after factoring pump replacement and retrofit to be done in Cuba really does make late June arrival in T&T as best case scenario.
Then there will be come kind of test run/examination/certification before being put into service on Tobago route.........if all goes well mid July looks like best target.
Hope the Spirit or whatever it name can take the pressure until this thing gets here to take-up the slack.
We can only hope for the best at this stage since the die has been cast.

[quote="rspann"]Mechanical problems. A water pump gone and they have to replace it.[/quote]

And the blight continues.

I thought it was a 'new' boat. Although, these things do happen.

Running in that type of water ,non stop would cause many failures. I have seen boats come in from Florida ,and when they reach ,all the cutlass bearings on the shafts gone.....and not even Chinese made boats eh.

Dotish statement of the year! Fact is, Roundabout and his minions have facked up again by having no spares on board for what was plain to everyone, would be a taxing journey half-way around the world.

This 'blight' just don't want to go away.
Honestly the many previous posts which focus on the funny side of things are our only way of coping with whats going on at this stage and in some ways mask our sense of futility.
The performance expectations are now so low that we may be happy with anything that kinda working.

That's the PNM for you, set the bar so low, that you're glad you're still getting air to breathe for free. That's why their supporters craws are firmly shut.

Galleons Passage not due till mid-June

AT ABOUT midday today, the Galleons Passage is expected to arrive in Panama City as it gets set to pass through the Panama Canal. Depending on the traffic, it could be Sunday before it sails out into the Caribbean. The estimated arrival date in Trinidad of the new boat, bought by the Government from China, is now likely to be mid-June.

Newsday has been tracking the Galleons Passage, a ferry, which will be used to service the seabridge. Checks at the Panama Canal yesterday revealed that the traffic was heavy, with boats and ships waiting their turn to pass through.

If the Galleons Passage makes it through the canal by Sunday, it will be just five days away from Trinidad, but it will not sail here immediately. The captain and crew are taking the boat to Santiago de Cuba, so when the Galleons Passage emerges, it will sail northeast.

The estimated distance to Cuba is 1,016 nautical miles, and it will take five days to get there. The Dutch company Damex Shipbuilding & Engineering, based in Santiago, will outfit the vessel with a covering on the upper deck and toilets. That will take approximately ten days. The Galleons Passage will then sail southeast to Port of Spain, for another five days. In total, the boat is 20 days away at present.

I suspect nothing major wrong with the boat as ppl want to believe and it probably is new as imps say

however I feel it might be a much underpowered/low capability boat compared to the existing ones
which is why he buy it at a low price compared to a true fast ferry like the spirit/express

Galleons Passage yet to pass through Panama Canal

THE passenger ferry Galleons Passage is expected to pass through the Panama Canal tomorrow after some modification to the vessel is made.

Page 20 of a 30-page manual which all boats are furnished with if their destination is via the canal, states that a vessel’s specifications must be submitted 96 hours in advance to authorities.

Newsday learned yesterday that it was only yesterday these specifications were submitted on behalf of the Galleons Passage which is making its way to Cuba and then Trinidad from China. The National Infrastructural Development Company (NIDCO) in a release yesterday, said when the boat arrived close to the port in Balboa, Panama on Wednesday last week, it was boarded by a Panama Canal captain who identified the need for modification to be made to the pilot boarding station.

The Galleons Passage, a new boat bought by the TT government from China to service the seabridge between Trinidad and Tobago, has been making its journey from Guangdong to Hawaii, then to Mexico before arriving in Panama. Newsday sent questions to NIDCO about the nature of the work to be done, duration and cost. The boat has to be lifted, like all others, with the help of lock gates, to higher level and later dropped down to the sea level at the other end. That explains why the modifications must take place. Once the work is completed and the vessel passes inspection, NIDCO said, the boat’s captain and crew would be advised of its scheduled time to pass through the canal.

“It is therefore estimated that the vessel will pass through the canal on or around Wednesday. Accordingly, the expected time of arrival in Santiago de Cuba is Saturday May 26 all good weather permitting.”
