The ferry Issaquah is out of service for repairs, causing the cancellation of runs on the Fauntleroy/Vashon/Southworth route, according to the Washington State Department of Transportation.
The 6:10 a.m. sailing from Fauntleroy to Vashon and the 6:40 a.m. from Vashon to Fauntleroy were canceled, as well as the 7:05 a.m. Fauntleroy to Vashon, 7:30 a.m. Vashon to Southworth and the 7:55 a.m. Southworth to Vashon sailing.

The Tokitae ferry is back in service Thursday morning after losing propulsion while sailing to Mukilteo from Clinton around 5:12 p.m. Wednesday.
Washington State Department of Transportation spokeswoman Susan Harris said the vessel drifted for a bit while the problem was assessed but then regained some propulsion and headed toward the Mukilteo dock to unload passengers and cars.
Harris said the ferry didn’t hit anything and no one was hurt.
The spokeswoman said the ferry, the Tokitae, has a dual-propulsion system and was not adrift.
The Tokitae is one of Washington’s newer ferries. It went into service on the Mukilteo-Clinton run last July. At that time, there were complaints that low vehicles would bottom out on the car ramps.
