OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - During the height of the busiest ferry season, one of Washington State Ferries mid-sized vessels will be out for repairs for the next four months.

Washington ferries spokesman Ian Sterling says the Elwha is going to be out for extensive repairs to a drive motor. The 48-year-old Elwha serves Anacortes and the San Juan Islands.

KING-TV reports (http://is.gd/sNV0z6 ) that the 124-car Kitsap ferry will take Elwha’s place until further notice.

Already the ferries Tacoma and Kaleetan are out until September for scheduled maintenance.

And it’s possible the Puyallup could be out of service next week for scheduled maintenance as well.

Sterling says they’re working on a long-term plan since the Elwha will be out of service all summer.
