Coupeville ferry run will temporarily return to two boats

The ferry run between Keystone and Port Townsend will return to two-boat service over Labor Day weekend.

Ian Sterling, spokesman for Washington State Ferries, said the vessel Chetzemoka is being temporarily moved from the Point Defiance-to-Tahlequah run to the Coupeville-to-Port Townsend run. It will remain on the route at least through the Wooden Boat Festival, which is Sept. 8-10 in Port Townsend.

The Chetzemoka is expected to begin service on the route Thursday afternoon, Sterling said.

The Salish, one of the two boats on the Keystone-to-Port Townsend route, was damaged when lines from a crab pot tangled with the propulsion system. The Salish is currently being repaired in dry dock in Anacortes.

Sterling said there is no currently no estimate on when the Salish will return to service.
