Calling All Boats

Here's the opening of an invitation to boat owners to participate in a boat parade to commemorate the Centennial Anniversary of the Ship Canal and Chittenden Locks. From

Join The Parade!
The Centennial Boat Parade Committee seeks boats of all types for a reenactment Boat Parade on Sunday, July 9, 2017!
We are seeking vessels of all types to replicate the original parade of July 4, 1917, including private yachts, government vessels, Native American and working boats of all sizes.
Use the above link for more information on the boat parade and other activities concerning  the centennial.
These two boats were both part of the 1917 boat parade along the ship canal and into Lake Washington. They are expected to take part in this year's event. If you own a boat and would like to participate in the parade, then use the above link to find the application form. Otherwise come out to watch and keep your eyes peeled for some truly historic and unique vessels.
