Our widely regarded maritime journal, The Sea Chest, is published quarterly and is included with membership to the Puget Sound Maritime Historical Society. Established in 1967, the journal's purpose is to record historical maritime events of greater Puget Sound, British Columbia and Alaska. We seek a scholarly blend of researched material and first-hand experiences to appeal to both the historian and general reader.
