FERRY ALERT: 2-boat schedule starting tomorrow for Fauntleroy-Vashon-Southworth

Trouble with the Washington State Ferries vessel M/V Hyak on the Bremerton run is leading to changes that will, in a domino effect, put the Fauntleroy-Vashon-Southworth route on a 2-boat schedule starting tomorrow. WSF published this announcement with full details. WSF says this could last up to two weeks.

    After reading the WSF bulletin which says it make take up to 2 weeks to replace the Hyak generator, is that because it physically takes that long or because the part takes that long to get?

      Don’t know – the effect is the same either way – WSF says it’ll take up to two weeks. Which, of course, COULD mean less time.

    FWIW, the Hyak is a 50-year-old boat, so that may mean getting replacement parts is more difficult and takes more time than on a newer boat. 


Sorry, comment time is over.
