The M/V Issaquah, built in 1979, is out of service until an engine problem is repaired.
The M/V Issaquah ferry, one of three ferries that runs from Fauntleroy to Vashon Island and Southworth, is out of service Wednesday because of an engine issue.
It’s not clear how long repairs will take or how many sailings will be affected.
“Unfortunately at this point in time, we just don’t know,” said Ian Sterling, a spokesman for the ferry system. “It could be something minor, yes. It could be something more serious.”
Sterling said the ferry, built in 1979, had engine problems over the weekend. The ship can hold 124 vehicles and up to 1,200 passengers.
