Alaska puts ferry on Ebay
Want to buy the E. L. Bartlett? The 193 ft, 236 passenger, 29 car ferry, built by Jeffboat in 1969 for the State of Alaska, is now surplus to the state's requirements. So Alaska is auctioning the vessel on Ebay.
To see the details, go to Ebay, click search and type in item no. 2426210166
The auction ends August 10. When we last looked, the highest bid received was $100,300, which was insufficient to meet the undisclosed reserve price set by the state.
