Damaged Ferry Towed

February 11, 2008

The Washington State ferry that was damaged after striking a dock has been towed to Eagle Harbor, Wash., for repairs. The ferry Yakima struck a dock adjacent to the Bremerton Ferry Terminal on its last run. The strike caused several fractures to the hull, some water intake and some structural damage. The fractures found in the hull were sealed by divers and the vessel was shored-up and dewatered. The vessel will need to be dry-docked, repaired and then inspected by the Coast Guard before it can return to service. The Coast Guard and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating the incident.
