Cook Strait ferry operator Interislander has put back by a day when its rented ship will be back in service.
A spokeswoman said repairs to the Stena Alegra hull damaged this week in high winds were progressing well.
However, while initial estimates were that the ship would return to service for the 8pm sailing on Sunday, April 13, it is now projected that repairs will be completed in time for the Stena Alegra to sail at 5pm on Monday, April 14.
The Kaitaki ferry will undertake the Sunday 8pm crossing in place of the Stena Alegra. There would be no disruption to passengers or freight customers.
The spokeswoman said customers should continue to check the Interislander website timetable
