Been a bad week for old wooden tugs in Puget Sound

first the tug IVER sinks in the Lake Washington Ship Canal on Monday and then the CHICKAMAUGA sinks in Eagle Harbor yesterday



Don’t these people know that you can’t have enough pumps on an old wooden boat? I personally have two 110v sump pumps and four 24v bilge pumps on ORCA and still check on it at least every two days or have someone check on it for me if I am out of town.

NO way!! I really enjoyed looking at the beautiful old tugs up there. I toured the Arthur Foss and shoved a fiver in the donation can.
