The Alaska State Ferry Kennicott, which was supposed to dock in Kodiak this morning at 7 a.m. was delayed due to the severe weather and high winds.
Ferry System spokesman Jeremy Woodrow said the Kennicott’s skipper was advised by the Kodiak Harbor Master’s Office to hold off docking until the wind died down.
The 382-foot vessel reversed course and sailed a holding pattern beyond the reefs in Chiniak Bay until about 11, when it sailed back in and docked just before noon.
