Here is a collection of some beautiful fishing vessels from our past. While the location is difficult to determine, names are visible on most of the boats. From the second ship on the left to the far right: Betty of Cordova, Favorite, Democrat, Seattle, and Kodiak all rafted along possibly a cannery dock in the Sound. Snow lingers on the mountains and there are a few gents visible on board as well as some drying laundry. Do you know the location? The owners of these beauties? Next week a few more vessels from the past.
