JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - More than 800 people toured the newest Alaska state ferry Sunday, even though the entire Alaska Marine Highway System faces an uncertain future.

The Juneau Empire reports the Tazlina is the newest ferry for the system, and will operate in Lynn Canal starting Tuesday.

The Tazlina will make day runs, beginning by going from Juneau to Haines. It then will go from Haines to Skagway and back. The ferry will overnight in Haines.

The following day, it sails to Skagway, back to Haines and then to Juneau. It will repeat this cycle three times a week.

Gov. Mike Dunleavy's administration plans to weigh an overhaul of the system aimed at limiting state support. No ferry reservations are being taken beyond Oct. 1.

The state Senate has proposed limited winter service.
