The Steamship Authority announced in a release today that M/V Iyanough is expected to be back in service by Tuesday afternoon. The vessel was taken out of service last week when the doors to the luggage and bicycle compartment were damaged during rough seas.
The repairs are were done at Gladding-Hearn Shipyard in Somerset, MA. Once repairs are complete, M/V Iyanough will return to Hyannis Tuesday morning for a US Coast Guard inspection.
Steamship Authority General Manager Wayne Lamson expects the vessel to be back in commission Tuesday afternoon. If all goes according to plan, M/V Iyanough will resume her normal schedule with the 1:55 p.m. trip from Hyannis.
