New SeaBus service date delayed

TransLink’s newest seabus, the Burrard Chinook has arrived but unfortunately is not ready for service.  The catamaran built by Damen Shipyards sits too low in the water compared to the rest of the fleet. The catamaran will need to have its dual hulls increased in size as the weight came in heavier than anticipated thanks to a larger onboard air conditioning system and an advanced emissions control system that puts the Chinook’s emissions at about 75 per cent lower than the Burrard Otter II.  The modifications are expected to be completed by the end of the summer 2020.
