Galveston ferry out of service, second to be inspected

Galveston and Bolivar residents will deal with a little travel trouble this holiday. Right now, the Galveston-Bolivar ferry only has three vessels in operation.

A mechanical problem knocked the ferry Gibb Gilchrist out of service for up to six weeks. The ferry vessel "DC Greer" is also at the shipyard for scheduled maintenance.

One of the three remaining ferries will also go out of service Wednesday and Thursday morning for a Coast Guard inspection.
