Washington state ferry service out of Kingston was back to normal Sunday following a mishap that shut the ferry run for three hours on Saturday.
Washington State Ferries spokeswoman Susan Harris- Huether said ferries are using one of two slips while the damaged loading ramp is repaired.
The slip suffered damage when its loading ramp plunged more than 20 feet into the water, taking dockworker Tim Seyl with it, Harris-Huether said.
“He was lucky — just a little bit of backstrain,”‘ she said.
The MV Puyallup was undamaged despite the loading ramp bouncing off the vessel.
