Here’s a correction sent by Fleet encyclopedist Rex Lee Carlaw who has been studying the Puget Sound fleet since he was a child.
Thanks for “The Fleet.”
Note: KEHLOKEN, not Kehlokin
Tahlequah, not Tahlequa
(But I don’t know if it can be edited.)
KALAKALA ran Port Angeles – Victoria until 1959, and TILLIKUM came on line in 1959, so that dates this. It does have errors though. SAN MATEO is missing; she ran Edmonds-Kingston. KLAHANIE ran Edmonds-Kingston and Fauntleroy-Vashon-Southworth, not Mukilteo-Columbia Beach. KEHLOKEN ran Seattle-Winslow, not Edmonds-Kingston.
This was the year I started riding the Edmonds-Kingston route regularly (I was 7). My parents bought a beach house (now at the foot of Lindvog Rd.) on 01 July that summer.
