    The high-speed ferry is delayed.

    Norwalk will have to wait its turn for high-speed ferry service to Martha's Vineyard.

    SeaStreak LLC president James Barker tells The Norwalk Hourthat the company has postponed ferry between Norwalk and the vacation destination until at least September.

    Barker says the company, which operates commuter ferries between New Jersey and Manhattan, recently opened up a new service from New York to New London and there just isn't enough equipment for a Norwalk boat right now.

    In May, Norwalk Zoning Commission approved SeaStreak to operate a high-speed catamaran ferry dock at Norwalk Cove Marina.

    The company planned to have a stop at the marina on Thursday afternoons and head to Martha's Vineyard, then return to Norwalk on Sunday evenings on the way to New York City.

    The Zoning Commission's approval of the ferry plan is valid for one year.

    Barker tells The Hour that SeaStreak won't rule out services on smaller boats at the Norwalk Cove Marina.
