Ferry musical chairs
Brace for longer waits on the ferries with the start of the summer sailing schedule with one less vessel. The 51-year-old Hyak is retiring in part because of old age.
The Port Townsend-Coupeville run will go from two boats to one starting Sunday. The Kennewick will operate solo on the route for a week, at least. The Salish will head from Port Townsend to the San Juan Islands to serve as the inter-island vessel, but it holds fewer vehicles than normal for the route. Port Townsend-Coupeville riders are encouraged to make reservations for sailing next week or to consider using Edmonds-Kingston and Mukilteo-Clinton routes.
