Last month’s ferry crash on Lake Powell will force a postponement of its operations until later this summer. Officials tell the “Tribune” the ferry between the Bullfrog and Halls Crossing marinas won’t begin operating until at least July 1st. U-DOT says the crash happened on March 12th when a ferry conducting a test run ran aground and struck a canyon wall. A captain’s report cited an inexperienced crew and wind as factors for the mishap.
