Vessels At Port Townsend

The Washington State Ferry System's M/V Quinault docked at Port Townsend, Washington, on a sunny weekend afternoon.

 

This ferry serves the route between Port Townsend and Whidbey Island. The remarkable thing is the M/V Quinault began her life as a ferry on San Francisco Bay in 1927. The ship has been modified considerably since it was launched. However, according to information posted on the ferry, she is still running on her original 1927 electric motors.
