West Seattle scene: Spirit of Kingston out on test run at Seacrest

This is our closest look yet at Spirit of Kingston, the future West Seattle Water Taxi vessel, since the King County Marine Division took possession last month – it’s been parked behind a fence at the county’s also-new maintenance barge while crews have been in training, but today we happened to be at Seacrest during one of its test runs. We’re checking with the county Department of Transportation to see if there’s an update on when it’ll be put into service to replace the older and breakdown-prone Rachel Marie.

    I wonder if the training they’ve been doing has anything to do with the change of crew on the Water Taxi, seemingly almost daily. I miss the original crew. :(

      Probably – and it’s got a few weeks to go, according to the update I just received from the county, which says S of K will not move onto the run before mid-May.

Sorry, comment time is over.
