Boat takes on water at Shilshole Bay Marina

A small fishing boat moored at Shilshole Marina partially sunk on Friday night.

When firefighters responded, only the stern was showing. They worked with the owner to pump water from the vessel. By the time we snapped this photo, most of the boat was back above the water — successfully salvaged for another day.

Can’t deny that its a slow news day but with all going on in the world, maybe that isn’t a bad thing.

It isn’t near salvaged until the engine has been completely cleaned of salt water. Very expensive damage.

The real story here is how the city is burning in the background and there is a nice amber overcast.
