We reported yesterday morning on the impending temporary move of the SBX from its Vigor Shipyard spot so the Arctic-offshore-oil-drilling rig Kulluk can be maneuvered in. MarineTraffic.com indicates the Kulluk is now off north Seattle shores, so it looks like all this is still on for later today – the plan was for the SBX to spend about six hours out in Elliott Bay doing testing this afternoon/evening. Meantime, from the WSB West Seattle Events calendar:

JOB-SEARCH SUPPORT GROUP: The long-running job-searcher-support group Notes From The Job Search meets every Tuesday at 11 am at C & P Coffee (WSB sponsor), 5612 California SW.

    Anyone else notice the “weird” track of the Kulluk & it’s tugs during the night? They did 2 360’s off Edmonds during the night and are now anchored off Port Madison. Must have had extra fuel to burn!!

      I think that was more for the timing – since the advisory from which we wrote our original story had very precise timing mentioned – just went down to Alki to see if it’s in view and it appeared to be visible, in the distance approaching West Point as of about 20 minutes ago – TR
