Carlisle II foot ferry is out indefinitely

Vessel will be replaced by Admiral Pete on route in the interim

PORT ORCHARD — The Carslile II foot ferry serving the Bremerton-Port Orchard route, now out of service, will remain so indefinitely.

According to Kitsap Transit, the vessel was removed from service Dec. 10 with the intention of returning to the route on Dec. 12. But engine failure issues continue to plague the Carslile II, the agency reported earlier this week, and engineers don’t have a completion date for a fix of the problem.

In the meantime, the Admiral Pete will handle the route and maintain the route’s schedule sailing times. The smaller Admiral Jack vessel will take on the Annapolis-Bremerton route.
