About a year ago* this ship was pushed into this moorage location adjacent to a metal scrapyard on the Duwamish River in South Park ( South Seattle). Since that time the scrapyard has ceased being a viable business and the property has been cleared, few reminders of the scrap business. What will become of this rusty, abandoned ship is a mystery at this point in time. There is an ongoing effort to clean up the river that has been going on since the EPA declared the area a SuperFund site back in the 1970’s, the first such declaration by the EPA.
*I just happened to be at this location to watch the ship being pushed by two small tugs into this spot. I have been shooting this location regularly for the past few years, documenting the major changes that are ongoing.
