Kalakala Settles with Makah; New NW Ships Website

The Kalakala Alliance Foundation has announced that is has settled its disputes with the Makah Tribe and both sides have agreed to drop legal proceedings. The undated announcement appears on the foundation website. The Makah Tribe sued the foundation in 2004 after the vessel was tied up to Makah property at Neah Bay in 2004. The historic 1935 vessel moved to Neah Bay after it was evicted from a berth in Lake Union. In the suit, the tribe claimed that the vessel had damaged a tribal dock. "The foundation will always honor the tribe and Neah Bay for helping us save our Kalakala," the foundation said. "We are extremely grateful for all their help when no one else offered to do so."

A new website has appeared with photos of some of the Pacific Northwest's historic vessels. The site is called Northwest Historic Ships & Boats.
