The final results from a review of the stability data still have to come in and Darrow said he will comment further on that issue in the future.
Darrow, who was handed the file by Premier Stephen McNeil after a series of cost overruns and delays, said he recently made a personal visit to the vessel.

He said he leaned on the wheel with all his force and could barely budge it.
The Bluenose II has been undergoing a multi year restoration that's been plagued by budget overruns and repeated delays, with the steering problems just the latest.
"We've just heard there's a vessel that's two years overdue that's overdue again," he said.
"We're doing our best to grease the skids so that . these activities can happen within the shortest possible time frame," Darrow told a news conference at a fisheries museum in Lunenburg after the vessel underwent a sea trial on Tuesday.
Nova Scotia's historic sailing schooner the Bluenose II needs a modern hydraulic system to turn its 3,200 kilogram rudder and make it seaworthy, says the senior government official overseeing the vessel's restoration.
However, a series of disputes and design changes followed.

Kelliann Dean, the deputy minister of Communities, Culture and Heritage, told the province's public accounts committee last week that the cost of restoring the vessel has risen to $19 million.
"That said, I must tell you I'm not optimistic we will be able to salvage much, if any, of this year's sailing season."
Experts will be hired to design the hydraulic system and to investigate a backup system where buoyancy is added to the rudder to help it move, he said, adding that the solution will also have to be certified by regulators and tested at sea.
Eddie Orrell, a Conservative member of the legislature, said he isn't fully confident with the latest ideas for a solution.
The province has already revealed there were seven redesigns of the rudder and steering system amid debates over changes to the rudder that date back to 2010.
He also noted that Nova Scotia's auditor general is continuing to review the restoration and he will have more to say about what went wrong with the project once that report is complete.
David Darrow, the premier's deputy minister, said Tuesday the work means the Bluenose II known as the province's roving sailing ambassador likely won't be setting sail this summer.
"The people of Nova Scotia expect the vessel is going to be there as a tourist icon and now we know it isn't going to be there."
Darrow said the stability of the vessel was also reviewed Tuesday, but the most recent figures and tests indicated it met the standards.
Darrow said he is relying on consultant Wilson Fitt of Costello Fitt Ltd. to help him in the process of fixing the various issues.

Darrow said it's too early to say exactly what installing a hydraulic system will add to that cost, but he promised to Tommy Hilfiger Khakis update the public.
The project team for the restoration of the Bluenose II decided it needed a steel rudder rather than the lighter wooden version used in the original vessel. The province has said the idea was to create a steering system that met certification standards while retaining the look of the historic racing Tommy Hilfiger Polo Shirt Discount

and preliminary results indicate stability is not an issue," he said.
Experts say the wheel of the vessel should be turned with about 30 pounds of force, Darrow said, but it currently requires more than three times that pressure.
of Lunenburg was otherwise successful, but Darrow said it confirmed the rudder is just too difficult for most people to operate.
