Ferry Wenatchee pulled from Bainbridge route after damage to propeller

The ferry M/V Wenatchee was pulled from the Bainbridge Island-Seattle route Wednesday night after the crew discovered the vessel had a bent propeller.

Ian Sterling of Washington State Ferries said the ferry likely hit a submerged log.

WSF plans to repair the boat in the water Friday.

The Wenatchee was replaced on the Bainbridge run by the M/V Walla Walla.

The Walla Walla carries 188 vehicles, while the Wenatchee has a 202-vehicle capacity.

WSF said the Walla Walla will stay on the Bainbridge route until the Wenatchee is fixed.
