Seas the day

That saying’s on front of T-shirts Washington State Ferries is selling to celebrate its 60th anniversary and help pay operating costs. There’s also a shirt that shows all the different kinds of boatss in the fleet. I can’t believe they didn’t start hawking stuff years ago. All the stores do it, but not WSF itself.

WSF and its advertising and marketing company, Trans4media, have launched FerryGear.com where official ferry merchandise is for sale. Besides T-shirts, there’s a glass mug, lapel pin, aluminum water bottle and baseball caps, all with WSF logos. And, one I don’t quite get, spice rub from famed restauranteur Tom Douglas. They say its one state icon getting together with another.

It looks like decent-quality stuff, not touristy trinkets, but I’m going to wait for the bobble-head dolls.
