    "Barnim" is another ferry to be repaired - proper usage?

    Hello again!

    Suppose it is September of 2014. I would like to say that ""Barnim" is another ferry that/which will be repaired in October", so I am talking about future.

    May I say ""Barnim" is another ferry to be repaired in October" or should I stick to ""Barnim" is another ferry that/which will be repaired in October"?

    Thank you.

    It really doesn't matter which you use.

    Barnim is another ferry [due] to be repaired in October.
    Barnim is another ferry which will be repaired in October.

    I assume that your use of "another" will make sense in the finished piece.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    What do you mean by "in the finished piece"?

    I mean that when you finish the piece of writing, there will be some context which makes the use of "another" make sense.
