1989, John Harding responded to additional service demands. A larger ferry was planned and
fabricated. The completed hull was
launched and the superstructure and engine components fitted into place. Upon completion, the new 250 foot ferry was
named “FN #2”. Finlay Navigation ferries
were roll on/roll off, zero discharge industrial transporters capable of
handling bulk commodities – log and mineral trucks or mobile equipment of any
the summer months, the “FN #2” provided twice-weekly service to remote logging
camps and villages. The ferry hauled
equipment and commodities ranging from loaded transportation trucks to
construction supplies and bulk fuel deliveries.
FN # 2 Fully Loaded In the Summer
winter months, the “FN 2” made shuttle trips across Williston Lake providing
time saving transportation to light traffic and up to 320 fully loaded,
off-highway logging trucks every day.
