Problems with the Labrador Inuit Development Corporation's (LIDC) tugboat and barge have caused a delay in plans.
Henry Lyall is the Office Manager for LIDC in Nain.
He says the tugboat and barge have been tied to the dock in Nain for the past two weeks.
Lyall says the water-crafts are not operating properly and LIDC is now waiting for replacement parts to arrive.
To fix the two vessels, an engineer will travel to Nain and carry out the repairs.
Lyall adds after the tugboat and barge are in working order, they will be sent to the Island for the winter.
