EDMONDS — The Edmonds-Kingston route resumed two-boat service Friday, after two days of having only one boat serve the busy crossing.
The vessel Spokane was docked early Wednesday due to mechanical problems.
The repairs were complete Friday for its return to service. Both boats were running on schedule as of mid-morning Friday.
At one point Wednesday, the wait at the Kingston terminal was 3½ hours and the single working boat was running 30 minutes behind schedule. It later improved to only a three-hour wait at the Edmonds terminal.
Thursday also brought delays and long wait times.
The Spokane was built in 1972 and rebuilt in 2004.
The Edmonds-Kingston route often had one-boat service during the pandemic due to crew shortages. Service was officially restored to two boats earlier this year.
Earlier this month, the route was up to three-boat service to compensate for the Bainbridge Island-Seattle route being closed. But that ended Tuesday evening.
