i can remember climbing aboard that listing hulk. The decks inside and out had a fine layer of sand on them and you had to hang on to the walls and railings. I would compare it to walking an icey slope. All the furnishings had been removed.
Never seen a "wall' on a boat

How about overpriced POS! I can say that because I worked at Todd shipyards in the 80’s building WSDOT super ferries.......:eek:
I was out back on that POS wood ways they dumped the boats in the bay when the quake hit, I was cussing under my hood @ the guy jumping on the staging, my bad, nobody there.....The cranes were doing a dance though.

Thread drift: Heading to said Canal Monday (no ferry boats involved for my part of the journey), Keith is planning to meet us (ferry involved) at Runamuck at 0800 Tuesday..... wondering if the MV Whatever will make her sailing schedule.
