Ferry Dead in the Water… Strands 100 Cars and 200 Passengers

No, its not Hawaii’s Military Superferry…

A Washington Ferry named the Elwha has left 200 passengers and 100 cars stranded on the ferry today in Washington because of engine failure.

Coincidentally, the Elwha also has a well-known reputation as being incident prone. Through her career, she has rammed numerous docks, run aground multiple times and even hit a rock while taking an alternate route by a captain in the San Juan Islands while trying to show a woman passenger her house from the water

After this incident, a song about the incident called “Elwha on the Rocks” became a popular tune for radio stations to play. Even a drink was later tabbed “The Elwha on the Rocks”. ;)
