Auto ferry service was reduced on the Bremerton route because the Wenatchee has been removed from service following a hard landing Sunday morning, Aug. 30. TheWenatchee is currently at Todd Pacific Shipyards in Seattle for repairs. WSF is working hard to get the Wenatchee repaired and operating before Labor Day.
