Sikhululekile, the R26-million Robben Island Museum ferry, has still not undergone sea trials. According to a report in the Cape Argus a leak at the cooling intake of the hull was detected when the ferry was being lowered into the harbour on Wednesday.

The report quoted V&A harbour master Steven Bentley as saying that it was common for new boats to have leaks and that engineers were continuing with repairs.
