I think someone here with experience in shipping will probably chime in. It appeared that the whole ship was suspended.....

The picture is of the Kennicot in a floating drydock which might be in Ketchikan. I saw it a couple of years ago with another AMHS vessel in it. The Kennicot is a ferry that carrys quite a number of cars and trucks in the lower portion.

Default Susitna

I see the Susitna is still at Ketchikan. That is the ferry that is supposed to be running between Point Mackenzie and Anchorage...but Anchorage has no place for it to dock. And they don't want one either.

Nice photos. The mountains in the background are beautiful. Really hope to visit Alaska some day - in the summer, though.
