The Catalyst! Celebrating Eighty Years!
Here’s more from Shannon Bailey:
Please join the crew of the MV Catalyst and Pacific Catalyst II Inc in celebrating the 80th birthday of the grand lady, MV Catalyst, in an Open Boat Party and Tour on May 5, 2012, 1 -5pm.
The Catalyst, once the workhorse of the Chemisty/Oceanography Department of the University of Washington and the Friday Harbor Labs is now used as a small cruise ship in the waters of SE Alaska, British Columbia and the San Juan Islands. She has her original Washington Estep 6 cylinder engine in full working glory, which will be started up and running for those engine enthusiasts.
She can be found at the Friday Harbor Marina, across from Friday Harbor Seafoods. Free to the Public.
