Washington state's first new ferry in more than a decade will make its inaugural run Sunday from Whidbey Island to Port Townsend with Gov. Chris Gregoire and a boatload of 300 other officials and invited guests.
The Transportation Department says the ferry begins regularly scheduled service on Monday on the Port Townsend-Coupeville run.
The ferry is called the Chetzemoka, after a former chief of the Jamestown S’Klallam tribe
It can carry 64 cars and 750 people.
