Yeah, I feel like that would be useful. I mean, the KDT’s are kind of limited as far as what routes they can sufficiently serve, but something slightly bigger than those would be cool. Hopefully the Tillikum will stick around for a while....as fast as the boats are being retired, there’s hardly enough new ones coming in. The Klahowya certainly had a quiet ending....

Here is a video I made from my last trip to Friday Harbor onboard the Tillikum coming back from Friday Harbor to Anacortes. Hope you enjoy, it gets wild right off the bat . (the fun starts around 20 seconds)

Well that was really sad to see! The seaplane is supposed to stay clear of all and not impede. If the seaplane had taken off with out delay it would have been a non issue! The Tillikum being the stand on vessel should have realized that Risk of Collision existed early on and taken early and substantial action to avoid a collision. Once you start sounding the ships whistle you should be reducing speed and or putting the brakes on to avoid a collision. I didn't see any reduction of speed or white water off the bow (brakes) off the Tillikum. The seaplane pilot could have some mechanical issues or medical distress or just not paying attention or just not very clever. Not good,definitely a near miss ! I sure like the sound of the Tillikums' Whistle though!!!
