Restoration of Dominion Tug

After a very successful haul out at Pacific Fisherman's Terminal this Spring, we now move to the last three (3) years of the restorative phase of Dominion Tug.  See more info and pictures at website .

The engine room has been a beehive of activity. Her 32000 cubic inch Enterprise 38 at 90 thousand pounds is a sight to behold. Supporting systems are coming online and the space is getting the same treatment as the main deck.

The shrink wrapping will take place shortly after Blackberry Festival at the Bremerton Marina and we tear into the decks, reset portlights, pull doors off for final finish, and on and on.

We have never been ahead nor behind schedule. We have always been right on track. We also take our responsibilities very seriously when it comes to donated money. In six (6) years we have shaved almost a million dollars off the project by being frugal and "doing the hard ugly work ourselves".

Please support the last West Coast Miki Class Tugboat and Pacific Northwest artifact by donating today.
