Pieces are Coming Together on New Snohomish

July 28, 1999

"It's starting to really look like a boat now," said Frank Jackson, the senior inspector on the Snohomish project. The passenger-only ferry is being built at Dakota Creek Shipyard in Anacortes. All the units that were built separately - the hull, the main deck and the pilothouse module - have been assembled. A milestone coming up this month is the loading of the main engines into the new ferry. Workers will also start on modifying Snohomish's bow to enable it to dock at car ferry slips. That feature will give it a slightly different look from its sister ferry, Chinook, which is now in service between Seattle and Bremerton.
