Former PT ferry's hull repaired, maintenance continues

By The Associated Press

BREMERTON — Repairs have nearly been completed to the state ferry Chetzemoka (chet-za-moh-kah), which had its hull dented last month while in drydock at Vigor Shipyards in Seattle.

The Kitsap Sun reports ( the shipyard took responsibility for the accident and made repairs at no cost to taxpayers.

The 64-car ferry could be back on the water Wednesday, but it needs three more weeks of maintenance at Eagle Harbor before returning to service on the Point Defiance-Tahlequah route.

The Chetzemoka, the first ferry in the Kwa-di Tabil class, began service on the Port Townsend-Coupeville route in November 2010.

It moved to the Point Definance-Tahlequah run in January 2011.
