Kalakala at Seattle's Colman Dock? Two New Maritime History Websites

The Seattle Times reports that Steve Rodrigues, owner of the historic ferry Kalakala, wants to move the vessel from Tacoma to Colman Dock, the main Washington State Ferry terminal on Seattle's central waterfront. The ferry system has so far turned down his request. Kalakala is managed by the Kalakala Alliance Foundation, which has applied to list the 1935 art-deco ferry on the National Register of Historic Places and the state's landmark list.

I ran across two maritime history websites I hadn't seen before: "Maritime History and Naval Heritage Homepage" and "Era of the Clipper Ships."
