This just a reminder if you have not gone recent pictures of Quinitsa, you better act soon ;)or you miss out .
She now four weeks away for her MLU. There will be changes to how she looks from a distance and for those on board. There will be changes for crew like nice shine new 60 series DDA engines ;D John Deere generators ;D Kuper style wheelhouse, new MES stations .
I was walking through Metrotown this evening and on a couple of the cash registers at the Orange Julius in the foodcourt it said "CLOSE - please use next register." And you reminded me of that blackshadow;) Thank you for pointing out this information... however a little attention to spelling and grammar would make reading your contribution a lot easier!
With the beloved Q-barge out for it's new engines, new wheelhouse, and plush reclining seats in the lounge, here's a look back.
I remember when they tried to make the Quinitsa five car lanes wide; it was fine if everyone was driving a Volkswagen.
BC Ferries has this thing about slightly inflating the vehicle capacity of their smaller vessels. Being an inveterate car counter, I don't think I've ever counted 50 on Quinitsa- 44 or 45 is more like it (a.e.q., of course).
I asked this question in the 'BC Ferries Refits 2008' thread, and it looks like I found my answer here.
Is it safe to say that the Quinitsa is at 'Sand Heads'? I haven't heard of that location so I don'y know for sure. Can anybody please confirm that this is where the Quinitsa refit is taking place, and, can you please confirm the precise location of it?
Definitely the Quinitsa; Quinsam's crew cabin spaces are significantly longer than those shown.
Incidentally, Flugel, nehw erew uoy gnikool ta Tnarom's Evruc hguorht a rorrim? You haven't lived until you've seen the 2816 Empress steaming along that stretch of track.

Thanks for the Q-onfirmation of the ship's identity.
I was at Morant's Curve on July 31st, and again on August 3rd, during a road trip holiday. Both times that I stopped at the curve, I waited approx 25 minutes until a train came by (just at the point when I was giving up hope....).
The sophisticated, inviting ambience of the Quinitsa's passenger quarters means the ten minute passage to the port of West Denman ends much too quickly. Passengers can recline on comfortably contoured molded metal seating and admire the faux-walnut floor to ceiling wall panelling and the tasteful multi-hued, scuff-resistant flooring, while depositing their trash in the brushed steel receptacle. Picture taken following the ship's triumphant return to service from her '08 re-modelling, which raised the bar on BC Ferries' already admirable standards of minor vessel decor.
On manoeuvres before continuing her storied career in Baynes Sound, the gleamingly revamped Lady Q shared the waters this day with Klitsa and Kahloke, three elegant mini-liners providing a feast of eye candy for ship fanciers.
