The Kitsap Sun reports dozens of runs on three routes --Point Defiance-Tahlequah, the north end of Vashon Island, and Port Townsend-Coupeville -- were canceled for lack of crew.
Dispatchers ran out of relief and on-call workers who were needed to fill in for regular employees on vacation or medical leave.
Ferry director David Moseley says the crew shortages are frustrating. He says the ferry system will do everything it can to reduce the chance of customer inconvenience.
