      Ferry Walla Walla back in service after temporary repairs

      SEATTLE (AP) - A hole that was accidentally drilled through the hull has been repaired and the ferry Walla Walla returned to service Friday on the Seattle-Bremerton route.

      The Kitsap Sun reports (http://bit.ly/1piIgtr) the repair is temporary and the ferry will need a permanent patch at its next regular dry-dock period.

      Washington State Ferries said Monday that a crew at the Eagle Harbor Maintenance Facility accidentally drilled a hole about 2 inches in diameter as it was working to drain dirty water and paint chips from the bilge.
