As you see from the link, the ferry was put out of action on 27 May by a fire. http://www.nwemail.co.uk/news/lakes/Passengers-and-crew-evacuated-from-Windermere-car-ferry-after-fire-234ee8a1-88c2-49a3-a725-f8d84ce25139-ds
It was reported on 11 August that the repair contract had just been awarded and that repairs had started, but with nothing firm about completion, so it's surprising if the ferry is back in action - http://www.thewestmorlandgazette.co.uk/news/16413050.merseyside-maritime-company-wins-contract-to-repair-windermere-ferry/?ref=rss). It seems to involve rewiring plus new engine.
