My optimistic opinion are going to say they will service in the late spring or summer of 2020; while, my pessimistic opinion says they not going to see service. I kinda hope my optimistic opinion happens because it haves people more options.
Is Island Ferry Services LTD still alive? I am asking because there hasn’t been update since June 2019.
You know that saying, 'no news is good news'? Well, when it comes to privately operated passenger ferry services in BC, no news is typical news. This stuff just doesn't work out, and I don't know how many more times we have to learn the same lesson. (V2V, I'm looking at you...)

It doesn't say in that latest article, but in the past, these guys were planning on running 2 boats. Is that still the case?
You guys think they have considered that V2V boat sitting idle in Victoria? A third boat would probably be overkill for a start-up, but It could probably be had for cheap.
I'll vote counter to the sentiment here. I think them launching is quite probable, but lasting power beyond 2 yrs? Definitely not impossible, but much more difficult if price point and schedule aren't competitive.
