Rescuing the tug Parthia
When Parthia, one of Puget Sound’s oldest tugboats sank in Hood Canal last August, members of the South Sound Maritime Heritage Association (SSMHA) and Puget Sound Maritime, along with other maritime history and tugboat enthusiasts jumped into action to save her. Parthia had a significant role in Puget Sound, where for more than 40 years she was a familiar sight on Olympia’s working waterfront.
With dramatic photos and narrative, PSM Past Presidents Frank Immel (of Global Diving and Salvage) and Chuck Fowler (of SSMHA), together with others involved in the project, will tell how they quickly banded together to save the Parthia in a 105 day-long salvage process.
Join us on Wednesday, February 7 at Broadmoor Golf Club for the story of the Parthia.
