New Washington ferry to bear name of Indian chief

Olympia, Washington (AP) 11-09

The Washington state Transportation Commission has agreed to name a new 64-car ferry the Chetzemoka after a former chief of the Jamestown S’Klallam tribe who befriended Olympic Peninsula settlers in the 19th century.

The ferry is expected to go into service next summer on the Port Townsend-Keystone run. It’s under construction at Todd Pacific Shipyard in Seattle.

It will be the second ferry with that name to serve Port Townsend. The first Chetzemoka sailed between Port Townsend and Edmonds from 1938-1947.

The chief lived from 1808-1888.
