Salish Sea is an inclusive term like the sixth boro, where on day 1, I’ve walked nearly a dozen miles. Special thanks to Meryll and Tom, and their newly launched Coot, sporting colors inspired by W. O. Decker. New Yorkers . . . we have much to learn on waterfront coexistence from Seattle.
Just a listing for now: Andrew Foss (1982, 4000 hp) over by the stern of Katie Ann and Pier 90. Thea Foss, founder of this company, . . . now there’s a story of a determined mail-order bride, the original Tugboat Annie.
Pacific Star, wearing Foss colors, docks right across the Canal from Titan.
K-Sea’s footprint is just to the west is marked by Pacific Pride and Sirius.
Out on Lake Washington, it’s Sea Prince pushing a spud barge.
And Lake Union, just in from the Ship Canal, has lots of houseboats and tugboats converted into yachts, like Owl.
Or maybe in the process of being converted, like Pathfinder.
More boats along the Lake include Triton and
Newt. I’m curious about this name for a tug: nature or Shakespeare?
Final shots for now . . . air harbor?
Check out these flying boats at Kenmore on the north end of Lake Washington.
All fotos by Will Van Dorp, now too eager to see more of the Salish Sea to further research any of these fotos. Research . . . that’s for rainy, cold, stormy weather . . . not today.
Special thanks again to Meryll and Tom.
