The Coastal Renaissance has started her engines and has been untied from the maintenance berth at Departure Bay. Her lights are on and there are quite a few crew members on board. I assume she's going out for a run. Wondered if she would be replacing the Spirit of VI but that does not seem to be the case as the VI is still showing on the schedule for today. (Edit: today's schedule has now changed, CR is doing the Swartz Bay run replacing the SOVI.)
The sound of the CR's engine woke me up just after 6 am and when I saw what was going on, I decided I'd rather watch her go out than sleep. I miss the ferries coming and going in Departure Bay tremendously.

A crane barge came in to Departure Bay this afternoon and is parked next to the Coastal Renaissance. I surmise that heavier work on the CR is likely starting soon. There seems to have been a bit of light work with a few people seen on the ferry but nothing big that I have seen.
Edit: the crane barge is actually for the Coastal Inspiration. The Renaissance and Inspiration switched places very early this morning.
