Coming soon…

…to a pedestal near, well, me!

Pointing Toward The Bar

On Thursday, October 7 at 11:00, the pilot vessel Peacock will leave the waters of the Columbia for the last time and be positioned on a set of pedestals at the east end of the Columbia River Maritime Museum campus as a permanent display.

Until then, she’s at the foot of 17th Street with a spanking new coat of paint.

“No single vessel has had a more profound impact on the economy of the Columbia River basin than the Pilot Boat Peacock.” -Bar pilot Captain Thron Riggs, from the CRMM press release.
