Manannan to have crankshaft repaired in September

Mon, 14 Jul 2014

Manannan will be taken out of service for three days in September to fix a broken crankshaft.

The vessel has suffered engine failure again - similar to the same problem it experienced four years ago.

The boat is now operating on reduced power meaning crossings will take longer.

The Steam Packet says it has a spare crankshaft but it is a major undertaking - therefore it's taken the decision to carry out the repair after the Festival of Motorcycling.
