Our Working Waterfront ~ 2/13/24

As Peter Marsh, journalist and Volunteer Director of Astoria’s Hawthorn Cannery Museum writes, “The Hawaiian Chieftain, a classic sailing ship with a bright yellow hull and traditional square rig, has been a popular sight on the waters in the Pacific Northwest for almost 30 years. But wherever it went, this unique steel vessel was often overshadowed by its wooden partner Lady Washington -the state of Washington’s official historic tall ship.” As we stand in the Boatyard below the Chieftain’s steel hull, we’re about to take a tour with Arren Day (pictured above), Lead Shipwright for the Chieftain’s restoration, and one of the twelve partners of the Port Townsend Shipwrights Co-Op. We’ll learn about some of the ship’s history and witness the work of the incredible variety of Boatyard artisans involved with the project. We’ll also find out what may be in store for her once the Hawaiian Chieftain’s owners take her back to her birthplace in Lahaina, Hawaii.

Short Step Back in Time

(Airdate: February 12, 2014) From the archives of Tossed Salad comes A Short Step Back in Time, in which Leader publisher-emeritus Scott Wilson interviews Mark Welch, a Port Townsend native whose roots stretch to the early days of the city. Of particular interest are the changes to the culture of the Port Townsend as young ex-urbanites arrived and brought with them skills and interests which turned the city from one of fishing and logging to one of art galleries and festivals.
