It turns out that, in addition to the dock, the latest BC Ferries crash at Duke point also damaged one of the ship's doors.
And recall, if you will, that this is one of those new gas guzzlers from Germany.
Which means that you can't order up a part from the lot, or even from the dealer down the street.
Instead, you've got to make the very expensive call across the ocean.
Chris Montgomery has the story:
Of course there is also the minor matter of the alleged Hochsteining of the local shipbuilding industry that may or may not (but I reckon it probably did) have had something to do with the awarding of those contracts offshore in the first place.
But hey, we've been through all that before.
I'm telling you, if you are not reading Ms. Montgomery's stuff regularly on all matters Maritime, you are really missing out. Case in point, yesterday she also questioned the official party line that there is nothing to see here/no need for a publicly scrutinizable investigation because this kind of stuff is bound to happen once in awhile.....Or some such codswallop.
