Tusty Sets Sail After Weekend Weather Delay

Jay Barrett/KMXT
The weekend storm in the Gulf of Alaska forced the Alaska State Ferry Tustumena to stay tied up in its Kodiak homeport until this morning.
Sailings scheduled for Saturday and Sunday were cancelled do to high seas and storm warnings.
The 300-foot Tusty finally resumed to service this morning at 5:45 when it departed Kodiak for Ouzinkie and Port Lions, before sailing for Homer.
Marine conditions in Kodiak Island, Shelikof Strait and Barren Island waters remain unsettled, with gale warnings for east winds to 35 knots and seas of 10 to 21 feet.
More information on the Tusty’s schedule can be found at FerryAlaska.com.
