Ana/SJs - Yakima Running 20 Minutes Behind Schedule

Vessel #2 Yakima is running an estimated 20 minutes behind schedule due to a propulsion generator issue causing it to run at half power. This delays the Lopez 9:15 p.m. to Friday Harbor and will delay the Friday Harbor 10:05 p.m. to Anacortes. For Friday, December 6, the Yakima will continue to operate at half power while technicians troubleshoot the issue on board the vessel. We anticipate delays of 15-30 minutes as the day progresses.
