At 8:00 a.m., Aug. 6, the Elwha temporarily lost steering due to a problem with the propulsion control system.  The vessel resumed use of the propulsion system on one end and was able to make it to Anacortes under its own power.  The Elwha is out of service until later this week while repairs to the propulsion control cooling system are made.
