Today is the deadline Euroferries Limited gave itself to close its purchase deal on Rochester's fast ferry boat.
There's no word yet on whether they'll meet the deadline.
City Communications Director Gary Walker says Euroferries staff are in town. He says the deal could be wrapped up today or tomorrow, but the actual date depends on how fast some final issues can be worked out.
Complications with warranties and getting approvals from the English and French governments for the ferry's new service across the English Channel have produced delays.
