Snohomish Resumes Service

Wednesday, February 13, 2008
The 149-passenger Snohomish was back in service with a 9 a.m. departure from the Bremerton Ferry Terminal, following a hard landing last night and an unrelated back-up generator malfunction this morning. Both Washington State Ferries (WSF) and the U.S. Coast Guard are conducting separate investigations into the incident that took place a little after 5 p.m. Feb. 11. The initial report is that there was construction equipment in the way as the Snohomish attempted to land at the Bremerton Terminal. The vessel, which was carrying approximately 141 passengers plus crew, tried to maneuver around the equipment and landed hard at the terminal. Some minor injuries to five passengers were reported. There was no damage to the vessel or terminal. Sailings were canceled for the remainder of the evening. The Snohomish will continue to operate on the normal #2 boat schedule, departing from the Bremerton Ferry Terminal and the WSF Pier 50 passenger dock (adjacent to Colman Dock) in Seattle, until the 144-car Hyak resumes service on the route sometime this week after returning from scheduled maintenance
