New Ferry at Green Cay Marina
If anyone wants a close look the new STX/STT ferry is docked at Green Cay Marina.
The ferry which ran aground was the last of several which had plied the route over the years. All were recommissioned "seconds" from outside the USVI. This boat is completely different as it was built locally specifically for this crossing. According to an article in today's Source it's awaiting sea trials in 6' swell conditions for completion of all its permitting.

Ferry update from Goldcoast:
"Quick update. MSC said they will issue formal response with “go ahead” for the rest of the testing early next week. We can then prep the boat and conduct the last trial ASAP once seas are correct. Hopefully that will happen by the 14th."
