Expect to see long lines normally reserved for the weekends along the road leading to the Edmonds-Kingston ferry terminal Wednesday. That’s because the route is down to one boat after the Washington State Ferries lost one of its boats from the Seattle-Bainbridge run Tuesday due to mechanical failure.

A decision was made to transfer a boat from the Edmonds-Kingston route to Seattle-Bainbridge — one of the busiest for the ferry system —  after the ferry Tacoma lost power Tuesday afternoon in the middle of Puget Sound. It is now undergoing repairs.

As a result, the single boat on the Edmonds-Kingston run is filling up quickly, causing long delays.
