Based on the latest maintenance schedule (which came out this morning), it looks like the Hiyu will be replacing the Rhody as the Sealth will be filling in for the Tillikum (work at Eagle Harbor) next week.
Neither the Service Impacts bulletin nor the maintenance schedule mentions anything about the Rhody filling in for the Christine Anderson (or, for that matter, the Hiyu filling in for the Rhody).

The lay-up schedule for 07/01/08 - 06/30/09 shows the Christine Anderson in drydock from 09/04 - 09/22 and at Eagle Harbor from 09/23 - 10/03. Assuming the Steilacoom II is still at Pt. Townsend - Keystone during this time and the Rhody fills in, it looks like the Hiyu will end up at Pt. Defiance - Tahlequah since the Sealth won't be avaiable.
Wow. And I was all excited. Saw the CA at Todd on my way to Seattle this afternoon, got a great photo of her with the Elwha and Chetz together, and everything, only to find out that I've been beaten to the punch... LOL. Good job, Z....
So the Sealth is on the PD-Talequah run, so I suppose the Rhody is down in Steilacoom now?
I did a little trip up to Port Townsend this afternoon. I wish I had known about Chetzemoka being up there or I would have gone earlier to take some photos of the new ferry at her future home. Oh well, there will be plenty of oppourtunities for that, but it was such a beautiful day, it would have made for some good photos. Anyway, here are couple I took of the Port Townsend ferry terminal:
Steilacoom II arriving at Keystone Harbor, in the evening on October 26, 2010. - we're on the beach at the Fort Casey RV park.
The STEILACOOM II is sure worn out in this photo. It's no wonder why WSF is not returning her to Pierce County in quick order. In WSF's contracts page, she's in for a bottom to top work over with new flooring in the passenger cabin and wheelhouse.
This one looks better in the night than in the daytime at this moment.
