Port Townsend/Coupeville ferry runs halted by stuck rudder

PORT TOWNSEND — The Port Townsend/Coupeville ferry was out of commission Sunday afternoon after the MV Salish bumped the bottom of Keystone Harbor.

The ferry was able to dock, but the rudder was stuck, Washington State Ferries said in a tweet.

Alternate routes include the Edmonds/Kingston ferry — which had a 3-hour wait at 3:30 p.m. Sunday — and the Mukilteo/Clinton ferry.

Washington Sate Ferries did not provide an estimate for when the Port Townsend/Coupeville ferry would be running again.
