The N.C. Department of Transportation’s Ferry Division suspended half the runs at the Southport-Ft. Fisher route Monday, due to a minor oil leak in the engine system of the Motor Vessel Southport. The amended schedule will last until mechanics fix the problem or a replacement vessel can be sent to the terminal, which may take several days. The schedule will be as follows: * From Southport, departure times are 5:30 a.m., 7, 8:30, 11:30, 1 p.m., 2:30, 4:45 and 6:15. * Departing from Fort Fisher, the times are 6:15 a.m., 7:45, 9:15, 12:15 p.m., 1:45, 3:15, 5:30 and 7.
