Ferry crossings are reduced between Wood Islands, P.E.I. and Caribou, N.S. until further notice because of mechanical issues with the MV Confederation.

Northumberland Ferries is waiting on new materials to fix a problem with the rudder, meaning the ferry will be out of the water for at least two days, says Don Cormier, vice-president of operations and safety management.

The company is now operating on a five round-trip schedule.

Priority is given to people with reservations.

The remaining departures Monday are from Wood Islands at 4:30 p.m. and 8 p.m., and Caribou at 6:15 p.m. 9:30 p.m.

Check here for Tuesday's schedule.
