Visitors returning home from Friday Harbor after the long holiday weekend were in for an unpleasant surprise Sunday morning.

According to Washington State Ferries staff, the reservation holders who were double booked were sent an alert.
Washington State Ferries: The M/V Samish is operating at half power while the crew troubleshoots an issue with the main engine.
