New Ketchikan float sees steady use

KETCHIKAN – The City of Ketchikan’s new drive-down float at Bar Harbor has seen steady use since opening on June 17.
 
“It’s been busy down there,” said city Port and Harbors Director Steve Corporon.
 
That certainly was evident on Wednesday afternoon, when boats lining the sturdy float included a seiner, a gillnetter and a commercial diving vessel.
 
A crew member of the gillnetter Njord was busy cleaning brailer bags as crew members of the seiner Quetzal walked the 48-feet by 120-feet float to head up the drive-down ramp.
 
“It’s really nice,” said Quetzal skipper Steve Good when asked about the new facility, “It’s a very nice change – a nice addition to the town.”
