Astoria Ferry makes a move


Good news for Astoria Ferry lovers was posted on the vessel’s Facebook page ( “Toot! Toot! The ferry is moving to the 17th Street public dock this afternoon, Saturday, Jan. 6, around 4 p.m.” The ferry’s arrival is shown in a photo by Bill Young.

“This will be its new home until perhaps mid-February,” the post continues, “while we prepare the floating dock at Pier 39 for longer-term moorage. Follow the ferry on Facebook to learn about open vessel days later this month.” Aye, aye, Captain.
