W. Seattle water taxi resumes sailings

UPDATE 7:51 P.M.: A back-up ferry is on hand and ready to resume West Seattle water taxi sailings at Pier 50, according to King County.

UPDATE 6:00 P.M.:  Sailings on the Rachel Marie, the normal West Seattle water taxi, are cancelled through 7:15 p.m., King County says in a news release. The next scheduled sailing is at 7:30 p.m., although it is unclear if that will be delayed.

ORIGINAL POST: On a bad traffic night, one option just got suspended: King County announced there will be no more West Seattle water taxi sailings until 7:15 to 7:30 p.m. because of  “mechanical issues.”

It appears the boat is out of service; a Tweet from the King County Twitter account said the Vashon water taxi will pick up all evening sailings.
