(New Bedford-AP) -- The ferry from New Bedford to Martha's Vineyard will be running again, starting Thursday.
   Ferry Schamonchi's seasonal opening more than two weeks ago was canceled over wharf access disputes
   Now, the Woods Hole, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket Steamship Authority has reached an agreement with the owners of Billy Woods Wharf in New Bedford.
   Wharf owners Carl and Michael Pimentel had increased the cost of wharf access ten-fold to 30-thousand dollars, after finding out they could no longer operate a city-owned parking lot across from the docks.
   Under the new agreement, the Steamship will operate the city's 350-car parking lot, as well as an adjoining 300-car lot owned by the Pimentel family, using the revenues to offset costs of a higher
wharf lease.
   Steamship authority C-E-O Frederick Raskin says the authority will roughly break even.
