Atlantic Vision fixed, back in service

Marine Atlantic says a problem with the steering control system on the Atlantic Vision has been fixed.

Marine Atlantic says a mechanical problem with the ferry Atlantic Vision has been fixed.

The vessel was taken out of service Tuesday because of a problem with its steering control system.

A Marine Atlantic spokesman says technicians with the ferry's manufacturer were able to diagnose the problem late Wednesday and make the necessary repairs.

The problem forced the cancellation of a couple of sailings, but the Vision was expected back in service Wednesday night.
