How do you turn over a 48,000-pound aluminum hull? Very carefully! Here's a time-lapse video of workers at US Workboats "flipping" the hull of the Ocracoke Express! Construction of the ferry system's first passenger-only ferry is now in its final stages.

Our crews recently installed speed bumps at the Cherry Branch and Minnesott Beach ferry terminals... so take this guy's advice and SLOW DOWN when you cross them! (Don't worry, he was moved to a safe location after his photo op)

As a service regulated by both the Coast Guard and Homeland Security, we ask that all passengers store their firearms in a locked part of the vehicle (trunk, glove box, etc.) while on board the ferry.
