Ferry service to and from Bois Blanc Island, more commonly known as Boblo Island, continues to be shut down.
As CBC News reported earlier this week, the smaller of the ferry company’s two vessels was detained last Friday by Transport Canada for running without an operating certificate.
The government agency said, to date, it has not received a request to conduct an inspection of the boat.
However, Transport Canada added it did inspect the ferry company’s larger boat on Wednesday. It’s been in for repairs for a longer period of time.
“The prospective date for return to service will be dependent on the vessel owner’s actions to address the inspection results,” Transport Canada said in a statement.
The ferry company is owned by Amico Properties — which also owns the island.
Neither of its two ferries have been on the water since last Friday — stranding some residents, according to resident and Amherstburg mayor Michael Prue.
An official with Amico Properties told CBC News the company’s focus was to get the bigger of the two ferries back on the water as soon as possible.
