Fauntleroy ferry alert: Delays, because one boat’s out for repairs

April 27, 2013 at 11:44 am | In Fauntleroy, Transportation, West Seattle news | 1 Comment

11:44 AM: WSB’er JayDee asked about a long ferry-wait line near Lincoln Park – from Washington State Ferries, here’s the reason why:

The Klahowya is out of service due to necessary repairs to the vessel. The 11:10 am sailing from Fauntleroy is cancelled. The next two departures from Fauntleroy to Vashon and Southworth are 11:45am and 12:20pm. Customers should expect delays. We apologize for the inconvenience. Updates will be posted when more information becomes available.

1:25 PM UPDATE: WSF has some cancellations, too – if you’re headed that way, ask about the ongoing schedule changes when you arrive at the dock.

  1. Hmmmm? Guess all those weeks in the yard didn’t fix her problem. Typical WSF, putting the focus on on time performance, as opposed to taking care of the real issues concerning boat maintenance. The hue and cry is ‘we have no money’, however, the office staff seems to continue to grow, new job titles given, resulting in wage increases for those not on the front lines, providing service. Very poorly managed system. I had thought our new Governor was going to address issues with WSF management.
