Warning this is a JOKE! ;D
Ok I just had too with all the talk about what boats for the Portownsend - Keystone run.
How about the new Issaquah Mini ! They will be just as much a pain in the butt and the run that sail.. They will only take 20- 25 years to work out the bugs, by then they will need to be rebuilt, If you are lucky hey will only have half the problems of the big sisters.
I talked to Bill Hunziker in Seattle to find out some information on the City of Clinton. It was built by Willis Nearhoff in Clinton. Hunziker said his shipyard was located on Berg Road in Clinton. Berg Road is south from from Ferry dock in Clinton.
Central and Central II were also some of the Ferries he built in Clinton. South Whidbey Historical Society had presentation of Ferryboat Now and Then about two weeks ago. A picture of the Central show up on the screen.
Hay! If you design it with a single wheelhouse with the crew’s quarters underneath, plate over the openings on the superstructure along the vehicle deck and make any of the other changes it will needs to meet Canadian Coast Gaurd regulations. We will also have the design of the replacement vessels for BC Ferries’ North Island Princess, Powell River, Mayne and Bowen Queens.
You can also design a smaller vessel with a 40 or 50 car capacity, but, same single wheelhouse superstructure as it four sisters ships, we will have the design for the new vessel for the Quadra-Cortes Island route.
Thanks a lot for these drawnings whidbeyislandguy.
