Ferry riders are treated to safety message at the start of each run, often read by local "celebs" like Star's Kent & Alan, Hawks' Steve Raible, and My, Oh My's Dave Niehaus. My personal favorite has always been from Governor Chris Gregoire. Strangely, her voice has been absent from EVERY SINGLE ONE of my rides to and from Bremerton since late last year, right around the time that WSF retired four boats.
However, on the luxurious boat to Bainbridge last night, I finally got to hear (and record) the governor's message again. Listen above. Sorry, quality's pretty rough.
"Hi, I'm Governor Chris Gregoire. Welcome aboard Washington State Ferries. You are sailing aboard one of the safest ferry systems in the world. Please help us maintain this safety record by listening and adhering to the following announcement."
