After experiencing extreme vibration on the M/V Elwha, divers discovered a significant amount of rope entangled in the boat’s propeller shaft. Divers worked to remove the rope and inspect the vessel for further damage. After operating on a modified schedule for most of Aug. 16, repairs were completed and the Elwha returned to service with the Anacortes 4:45 p.m. sailing to Friday Harbor. This restores the regular schedule to the Anacortes/San Juan Island routes. Reservations are now available for the remainder of the day. The Friday Harbor 5:30 p.m. interisland sailing to Orcas, Shaw and Lopez will be delayed up to 45 minutes.
