South Whidbey ferry passengers encountered delays Wednesday afternoon as the Clinton-to-Mukilteo ferry route was limited to one-boat service.

The reduced service was in effect from noon to about 4:30 p.m.

The 124-vehicle M/V Kittitas required repairs following a complication with the vessel’s steering-gear hatch. After being pulled from service for a few hours, M/V Tokitae was the route’s sole vessel.

The complications led to waits ranging from 30 minutes to more than an hour on the Mukilteo side.

The reduced service occurred the same day a 38-year-old passenger was arrested for brandishing a “large kitchen knife” in a confrontation with a juvenile.
