The Christine Anderson has been at Dakota Creek Industries in Anacortes this past month receiving its biennial overhaul. The final parts installations have been completed and the Christine Anderson must only pass its dock and sea trials (observed by the U.S. Coast Guard) to return to service. Trials are planned for October 2 in Anacortes and it is possible the Christine Anderson will return to Steilacoom late Wednesday, October 3.
The photos below show the vessel after repainting last week and after being returned to the water on the morning of September 20. Click on the photos to view them full-sized. Dock trials, sea trials, and final inspections are next on the agenda. More information is available on the Learn About Ferry Projects page.
