WATER TAXI ALERT: Boat trouble, one run canceled

A choppy start to the West Seattle Water Taxi‘s 7-day-a-week schedule – the 3:45 pm departure from downtown is being skipped because, per the county alert:

Due to a mechanical issue with the Doc Maynard, the 3:45 departure from West Seattle has been cancelled while the crew takes the vessel to the King County maintenance facility and brings the Spirit of Kingston into service beginning with the 4:05 departure from Pier 52.

The substitution could be problematic later since the Mariners’ home opener could mean bigger usage, and SoK is a smaller boat. We’re checking.

    (and it seems, there’s an incident on 99S, not sure where though, just got word of traffic and ambulance driving by)

    So, it it just me or does the Doc Maynard seem to be out of service a lot for a newish boat?  

Sorry, comment time is over.
