The Port of Port Townsend is trying to destroy a man's livelihood and a historical vessel. I had the pleasure/misfortune/trial/agony of owning this vessel for a few years while I was living in LaConner Washington. Marc Landry (the current owner) has put thousands of hours and hundreds of thousands of dollars into restoring this vessel. He has rebuilt almost every piece of this vessel and has almost gotten it to its past glory when it was the proud first vessel of the Seattle Harbor Patrol.
Please take a moment and sign his petition to block the port from participating in some decidedly dirty pool and grossly misusing the derelict vessel laws.
If you are in Port Townsend go and check out the vessel (if the port doesn't destroy it before this). It is a unique and beautiful piece of history!
