Dock hands tie down the Nova Star on Thursday as it arrives in Portland from Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. The 529-foot ferry entered the harbor just before noon, escorted by a city fire boat. City officials including Mayor Michael Brennan and City Manager Mark Rees greeted the ferry at the Ocean Gateway Terminal, but ferry passengers were delayed in disembarking as ship and terminal crews tried to properly align ramps and gangplanks. Daily trips to Yarmouth are scheduled to begin May and run through Oct. 31.
