Steel-Electrics Near to Being SoldSeptember 8th, 2008 by ed friedrich
The period for brokers and bidders to make proposals for the state’s four retired Steel-Electric ferries ended Friday. Washington State Ferries received “multiple” proposals for one or more of the 80-year-old boats, said spokeswoman Hadley Greene. We might know this week who’ll get them and maybe what they plan to do with them.
The boats were on eBay for 10 days in July, but none got the minimum bid of $350,000.
