ON 226738, IMO 8836156, built on San Francisco Bay in 1927 for the Southern Pacific Railroad as the Redwood Empire. After bridges put her out of work on SF Bay she was bought by Captain Peabody's Black Ball Line for use on Puget Sound. She was sponsoned and modernized in the 1950s and rebuilt from the hull up in the 1980s, though her original electric motors still push her along. One of four remaining "steel electrics" in the Washington State ferry fleet, Quinault will probably be retired soon. (Port Townsend, Washington, September 8, 2005)
