Capt. George A. Capacci Interim Assistant Secretary WSDOT/Ferries Division reports in the 'WSF Weekly Update'  on the 'Tacoma' repair plan as follows:

"This week, we received an initial update on the Tacoma repair plan from Siemens Marine Solutions.

The report says a fuse blew in the vessel’s propulsion control system without indication to the operating engineers, triggering a chain of events that led to the power failure. We continue to review the cause of the incident.

A Board of Inquiry, WSF’s highest level of investigation, convened this week and expects to complete their work once the vessel repair is complete.

Preliminary findings show the Tacoma will be out of service until at least December 2014.
