Steel-Electrics Near to Being Sold

September 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.

    I wonder if anyone will dry dock one and convert into a home? The deck would make a super roller rink.
    It will be interesting to see where they go and what will happen to them.
