    Shelter bay / gelena bay ferry

    Just an fyi, BC government have implemented a new law that you cannot have more than 1 jerry can empty or full in your vehicle to board the ferry. You are allowed 2 in the trailer or vehicle you are towing. Came across this morning and BC ferry lady almost got slaughtered over this. A truck behind me had 2 dirt bikes in the box and each had a jerry can, they would not let them on, i took one of his cans in the back of my suv. There was a pile getting others to haul the cans across. Be a pain going to trout lake to ride.

    Buddy along side of us was towing a jeep, it had 3 old empty steel jerry cans mounted to the body, he said he has never used them and were only on there because it is rusted behind them. He had to remove one and put it in his camper. Safety issue, she pulled out the sheet and went through it with us. Totally unbelievable.

    I talked to the ferry guy while waiting for the ferry about that. In his words they look for red cans, if your gas happens to be in yellow cans you are good to go. Its considered diesel and not expolsive. They dont look past the point of color. That was the upper arrow ferry.

    Re: Shelter bay / gelena bay ferry

    I remember a few years back when we had 2 extra propane tanks in the box of the truck. 1 for cook stove and the other for the BBQ. We had to get a guy to take 1 across in his truck for us as we were only allowed 1 extra with the the 2 in the 5th wheel.
    I have attached a link on this.
    Caution if you are hauling a slip tank of gasoline also. It must be tied into the fuel system or no go if I am reading the rules correctly.

    Re: Shelter bay / gelena bay ferry

    I came across that ferry from both directions this summer and the lady just asked me on the revelstoke side if I had jerrycans which I said no (small fib) never made me open my tailgate to check and nobody asked at all on the other side coming back.

    Super dumb if they are empty and they give you grief. Whatís going to happen to it in your shut off truck on a 25min ferry ride that didnít happen on a how many hour drive???Your crossing a giant river, not the inside passage.
