Hi Eric,
This is at Tarkanen Marine Ways in Sointula, there are 3 ways side-by-side here.
I'm hauled out here for zincs, antifouling, caulking touch-up etc.
That boat hauled out yesterday pm. I haven't talked to the owner, he's not around today.

Ted

tug Meteor

This is pic of the tug Meteor that my dad owned in the mid to late 50's. Heavy wood, with 2 110HP Washington engines. It was dads favorite of the nearly 20 tugs he owned and worked between Seattle and Alaska. I remember playing around on it as young kids, she was huge, to us, at 80 feet long, with that awesome steel fidley over the engines. Biggest tug dad owned. He chartered her out to a guy who promptly piled her up on the beach near Sand Point AK, where she burned up.

This Navy whaleboat (wood) conversion had me all tied up in knots when I was a kid of about 10. It was moored at my Grand dads boat sales dock on Lake Union in Seattle for sale for $1000! Had a 30HP Palmer gas engine in it. Pop said sorry boy, no can do. Here it is later on the lake, looks like sans engine the way she sits. It also had a mast and boom fish boat style when I wanted it. The Sea Hawk III.

I passed this unusual creature in the Cuyahoga River the other day. They were using it to inspect a lift bridge.

Looks like the Battlestar Galactica to me.

This was taken in Seattle shortly after arriving from San Francisco. My grandfather O.H. "Doc" Freeman nearest the bow in black. This was late 40's or early 50's I think. She looks a little different today!

78-Doc Freeman was your grandfather? I knew his old place right under the Aurora Bridge before it closed. Didn't he own part of the Virginia V steamship at one time?

I believe so, among many other boats, large and small.

Born in 1921

Here is a great boat almost 100 yrs old built in Seattle in 1921.

She looks very weathered now but it's easy to see what a great lady she was.
She's powered w a 4-71 DD.

I know that boat, here in LaConner still? Used to be in Shelter Bay. I did some work on it for the old duffer who had it some years ago, haven't seen him or the boat in years. His name was Charles. Not Chuck, not Charlie,,,Charles! I got told.

What's the length of that beauty? Kind of hard to tell from that angle.

Cant recall for certain but I think she is about 36-38'. If you look closely at the hull, you can see that she has an overlay of narrow "planking", that was put on in sort of cup and cove style, edge glued, sort of like strip planking. I don't remember if "Charles" did it or someone else.

Well, if it's not Lon or Chin, I'm sure he's Ded.

Methinks Lon Ded Chin = Long Dead Chinaman.

Greetings,
What makes this particular 110 year old vessel worth $200K? Uniqueness? Fresh Gardner? Surely NOT the fact that it is a wooden boat coated with FRG...A death knell for most wooden boats IF not done properly IMO.

Lon Ded Chin, if in fact it IS what Mr. D suggests, is in poor taste (also IMO).
