Tall ships Hawaiian Chieftain and Lady Washington to pass through Locks Thursday

If you missed the tall ships last week, you now have a second chance to watch the Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain pass through the Ballard Locks on Thursday, Sept. 13. The historic ships have been in Lake Washington since the 7th, offering tours and sails to the public. On Thursday they’ll be leaving Seattle, bound for Olympia.

While they can’t give us an exact time that they’ll be passing through the Locks, Zachary Stocks from Historical Seaport tells My Ballard it should be before lunchtime.

Another way to track the boats, if you’re so inclined, is to look for them on shipfinder.co, which is a real-time map of registered vessels. (Zoom in on Seattle and you may be able to spot them.)

  1. Beware all ye opium addicts and stowaways! At sail in the open sea ye would be keel hauled until ye became shark food, or sank with the weight of your sins all the way down to Davy Jones’ Locker. Repent and amend your ways.

    By the grace of our Lord and Savior, who leads our mighty vessel into calm waters with full sails, may our honest labors be rewarded. Thievery, deception, devilry, sodomy, and the use of opium are all foul and offensive in the eyes of God who punishes with the full might of his wrath.

    Ye thieves and sinners have been warned fairly, and only the Lord may grant mercy where the laws of the sea do not.

    1. I was on board with ya until you got to the sodomy part. I’m a taxpayer, I can get busy in any fashion I choose!
      Honestly though, those ships are freaking cool looking.

        1. my wish for up arrowing was for homeless on the range .. NOT FOR AHAB

          all these minus votes.. must be a ton ov homophobe jesus freaks in this hood.. reason enough to revolt & not be like the status quo

          1. Don’t let it get you down…it’s the SJW virtue signalling crowd expressing their displeasure at differing opinions…even if, in this case, the differing opinion is a screen name that offends their views of our city’s ‘most vulnerable.’

    2. A pirate walks into a bar. The bartender says to the pirate, “Ahoy, matey! I can’t help noticin’ that ye ‘ave a steering wheel down yer trousers.”
      “Aye,” says the pirate, “And it’s drivin’ me nuts!”

  2. Shipfinder doesn’t work well, and it costs $3.99. Findship, otoh, works well and is free, plus it found both ships still docked right now over in Kirkland.

    1. I’m using Shipfinder and not paying. Trying Findship also but I can’t find Lady Washington on either of them only the Hawaiian Chieftain
