just saw this on ADV rider
The Queen of the North sank last night at around 01:00. Everybody got off safely and there were no reported injuries
The ferry travels between Prince Rupert and Port Hardy on Vancouver Island,.
Susan and I took our first "big motorcycle trip" on that ferry in 2001. North from Port Hardy to Prince Rupert and then off to Jasper - rode the Icefield Parkway, into Banff, on to the Calgary Stampede and then rode every twisty road we could find home to Vancouver.
There was some talk in the last few years that the Queen needed some safety work done on her bow doors so that they wouldn't broach in heavy seas... that is moot now
