This week's On The Waterfront column touches on a container ship that made port after experiencing engine trouble, YC-1646, a navy barge on the hard for refurbishing, and the countdown to Esther Marie's last day.  There is also a tidbit about the maritime origins of a commonly used word, and that word is ...

This week's On The Waterfront column is about an interesting Port Angeles High School drift card study originating in the Strait of Juan de Fuca and a visit at Platypus Marine from CSI.

This week's column is about the log ship, Dry Beam, that lost part of her load when hit by a rogue wave and had to be diverted to Victoria, British Columbia, the tug Mitchell Hebert that is being retired from a career of assisting Trident submarines in Puget Sound and the tale of a Homelite outboard motor whose days of hanging off a transom are over.

This week's On The Waterfront column is about a young man who went from flippin' burgers in high school to driving "pretty blue boat(s)" as a ship?s captain aboard the Millennium Class crude oil tankers for Polar Tankers, Inc., a subsidiary of ConocoPhillips.

In Memorial - Passing Shipmates and Family / Re: The Passing of Dave Nesbitt

Senior Chief Dave was a pillar of strength when the King Association needed someone to take on the leadership role to bring stability to a wavering organization. Dave willingly took charge and helped us through some tough times. Shipmate Dave and his pillar of strength, Joanne, did all they could and more than any of us could ask, in order for the Association to survive. The past couple years have been very difficult as Dave fought hard to beat the inevitable. Joanne was by his side and did everything she possibly could do in supporting Dave in this battle for his life. As long as there is a USS King Association and beyond, our members and our friends of the Association will always owe a debt of gratitude to these wonderful giving people.

For me personally, it has been a true honor to know Dave, to chat with him, to exchange email humor, and to give advice when he asked. The best feeling of all was when Dave called me his friend. No more pain and no more suffering for our shipmate who has now joined the staff of the Supreme Commander. My most sincere sympathy and greatest respect and gratitude go out to Joanne for taking care of the Senior Chief in his most difficult time of need. Thanks Joanne and may God bless and keep you both. As I ended so many emails and just one more time for Dave: "Your Friend and Shipmate, - Irv -"

Today 15 February 2012, the USS King Association lost one of it's founders and bulwarks. Dave Nesbitt who helped chart the course for this association and who was a stickler for doing what was right, had led the association as publisher of the Association newsletter "Buccaneer" and as President. Our hearts go out to his family, those that served with him, under him and closest friends, he will be sorely missed.

This week's On The Waterfront column is about a WW II era Navy landing craft that was converted to a clam dredge in the early 60's by the Edgington brothers of Port Angeles, Wash.

This week's column evolved from a question a reader of the column asked about the depth of the Port Angeles harbor, the size and weight of ships anchors and the length of anchor chains.

In Memorial - Passing Shipmates and Family / Passing of Shipmate Lyndon Clark Hargrove
« Last post by lharg5 on February 08, 2012, 05:46:32 AM »
Lyndon "Lyn" Clark Hargrove passed away February 8, 2012.  He was the father of 6 children.  Three by an early marriage and 3 by his current wife, Lesley.  They reside in Tyler, TX where he made his home since 1989.  Lyn served on the King in the early 60's and was a "Plankowner". I am not sure of his rank.  He spoke about his days on the King with great love and treasured the bonds he made during this time of his life.

If anyone knew Lyn and would like to share stories.  Please contact us.  lharg5@hotmail.com
