Washington ferries getting back on schedule

The Associated Press

SEATTLE — Washington State Ferries says the Wenatchee has had a leak repaired at a Vancouver, B.C., dry dock and is returning to service Friday.

The Wenatchee should return to the Edmonds-Kingston route by midday, allowing the Chelan to return to the route through the San Juan Islands. That will allow service to resume Saturday on the route between Anacortes and Sidney, B.C.

The ferry system had to shuffle ferries after the Tacoma lost power Tuesday on the Seattle-Bainbridge Island run. Spokeswoman Marta Coursey says there’s no estimate yet on how long repairs will take or when the Tacoma will return.

When the Wenatchee and Tacoma went out of service for repairs, two other ferries were out for scheduled maintenance, leaving little flexibility in the 22-vessel fleet.
