FERRY ALERT UPDATE: 2 boats on Fauntleroy-Vashon-Southworth run until mid-evening

(WSF “live” view of Fauntleroy terminal loading zone)

3:01 PM: Washington State Ferries says the Fauntleroy-Vashon-Southworth route is down to 2 boats because the M/V Issaquah is having mechanical trouble. This is separate from the problem that canceled some M/V Kitsap runs this morning because of a crew shortage.

6:38 PM UPDATE: WSF says M/V Sealth will take the Issaquah’s place at mid-evening, but it’s still 2 boats until then:

The M/V Issaquah is out of service for the remainder of the day due to an issue with the clutch. This will cancel the following sailings:

Fauntleroy 7:10 pm and 8:15 pm
Vashon 6:35 pm and 7:45 pm
Southworth 6:15 pm

M/V Sealth will sail the remainder of the service day for the Issaquah beginning with the 8:45 pm departure from Vashon.

Please expect delays due to the service disruption on the route.

6:46 AM MONDAY: The Issaquah is repaired and back on the route, which has returned to full service, WSF says this morning.

    Tomorrow is the first day of the water taxi closure, too! Does not look like tomorrow will be a good commute….

      They’ve since announced another boat will join the run later tonight. Adding the update right now.

Sorry, comment time is over.
