Alaska to sell two fast ferries

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - The state of Alaska plans on selling two of their fast ferries in the coming months.
AP reports the state Department of Transportation and Public Facilities intends to sell the F-V Fairweather and the F-V Chenega.
The Fairweather will be replaced by a new ship, the F-V Tazlina, this year, and the state expects to save $400,000 in fuel costs by retiring the 15 year old Fairweather.
DOT says no job losses are expected from the change.
