Transportation Safety Board finds no problems from the recent adventure of the Northern Adventure

There were "no systemic safety issues arising from this incident," -- Ken Potter, manager of marine investigations for the Transportation Safety Board, outlining the findings of the TSB's inquiries into the recent aborted sailing of the Northern Adventure.

The Transportation Safety Board appears to have closed the file on that aborted sailing in November, which saw the BC Ferry Northern Adventure turn back to Prince Rupert in the face of huge winter storm in Hecate Strait.

Ken Potter, TSB's manager of marine investigations, outlined the details of the Boards' findings to the CTV television network, advising that after extensive interviews with the vessels captain and a review of the incident that there were no systemic safety issues determined from the incident, and that no further investigation is warranted in this instance.

BC Ferries is conducting its own internal investigation into the happenings of November 23rd, but no findings have been released as of yet.
