LOW TIDES CAUSE FERRY PROBLEMS

Extremely low tides over last weekend and into this week caused some concern for local ferry operator Western Ferries.

 

 

 

Managing director Gordon Ross told the Standard: “There have been a series of exceptionally low tides and our service was disrupted for about an hour on Friday (March 11) from 6.30pm until 8pm when our normal service resumed.”

 

Western will be starting its four boat service from this coming weekend.

 

While Argyll Ferries told us there were ‘no problems reported on the Dunoon route due to low tide’, the company did have its own issues. Argyll Flyer was out of service on Saturday. A spokesperson told us: “The problem with the Flyer on Saturday was to do with an electrical fault with the engine alarm system. It has been fully resolved with no further reported problems.”
