Ferry significantly damaged in ‘hard landing’ at Fauntleroy dock

SEATTLE — The Cathlamet ferry made a “hard landing” at Fauntleroy dock Thursday morning, causing significant damage, according to Washington State Ferries (WSF).

The ferry collided with an offshore dolphin, a terminal structure that helps guide a boat, at Fauntleroy dock.

WSF tweeted first about the collision just after 8:30 a.m. and said no injuries had been reported.

The Fauntleroy service has been suspended while the WSF assesses the damage.

WSF said in its voyage bulletin that the number one vessel is still operating between Vashon and Southworth terminals, but customers could “experience some delays”. Alternate routes are also offered in Point Defiance/Tahlequah and Seattle/Bremerton.
