Maintenance Requires WSF Vessel Changes

Thursday, August 09, 2007
Washington State Ferries announced that it will be making a number of vessel changes this weekend to accommodate the need for vessel maintenance. The MV Elwha will replace a sister ship, the MV Kaleetan in the San Juan Islands. These vessels are the same size so there will be no impact to service. On August 12, the smaller Kaleetan (144-car) will replace the slightly larger MV Walla Walla (188-car) on the Seattle/Bremerton route. While it carries fewer vehicles, the Kaleetan carries 500 more passengers. The Walla Walla will replace the slightly larger MV Puyallup (202-cars) on the Edmonds/Kingston route while the Puyallup goes to the Seattle/Bainbridge route to replace its sister ship, MV Tacoma. The Tacoma and the Puyallup are the same size so there will be no change in service on the Seattle/Bainbridge route.
