Seen off West Seattle: New state ferry Suquamish, on sea trials

Amy sent the photo, wondering about that state ferry’s eye-catching maneuvers off Alki. MarineTraffic.com id’d it as the Suquamish, which has been under construction at Vigor on Harbor Island – where it was christened in January – so we checked with them. Spokesperson Athena Maris says the Suquamish was out on sea trials, and is expected back out early tomorrow morning, starting around 7 am. It’s expected to join the WSF fleet later this year.

    That picture is awesome with the palm tree, sand beach and blue water. Bahamas? Hawaii? Nope, just Seattle, where ‘it always rain’! (Don’t spread the word or this picture. Let’s just stick to the rain theory.)Now I want a Mojito. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
