Ferry engine stalled
The "Tacoma" returned the dock on Bainbridge Island after stalling in the afternoon of July 29. The ferry lost power on the Seattle-Bainbridge run just before 1 p.m. There were more than 405 passengers and 138 vehicles on board. The "Tacoma" dropped anchorto await help and was eventually towed to Bainbridge Island. The "Sealth" that was on the Bremerton-to-Seattle run, had been rerouted to be on standby next to the "Tacoma" which docked at about 3 p.m. It was to be towed to a repair dock so engineers could try to determine why it lost power. The passengers who were delayed received vouchers good for one trip on the ferry system.

Bulker allowed to sail for repairs
Zhe beleaguered "Fritz" has left the Port of Oshawa after being cleared to travel to Hamilton for repairs. The damaged ship, stuck at the Port of Oshawa, had its detention order lifted for a single cruise to the Port of Hamilton for repair on July 23, 2014, for one voyage, under controlled conditions. Following the arrival of the "Fritz" at the Port of Hamilton, Transport Canada planned to issue a new detention order. The vessel will not be allowed to leave the Hamilton Harbor until the Department is satisfied that the vessel is in compliance. Transport Canada was continuing to work with the vessel operator to bring the vessel into compliance. The "Fritz" left the Port of Oshawa on July 24. The ship was previously being detained at the Port of Oshawa. The Romanian crew had made news by claiming they had not been paid for months and had been subsisting on little food or water. They had been striking before an arrangement had been reached with a new management company. Several new crew members have arrived from Poland, while others were staying on board. They have been paid up, and all were in good spirits. 13,000 metric tonnes of cargo were offloaded during its stay in Oshawa. The "Fritz" had been travelling up the St. Lawrence Seaway when it suffered engine trouble. It was towed to Oshawa on July 9. A detention order was put in place on July 10.
