More than a year and a half after the three-masted schooner Wawona was towed away for dismantling, the nonprofit maritime heritage group Northwest Seaport now hopes to give away pieces of the landmarked ship to museums, artists, and others.
According to The Seattle Times, the Museum of History & Industry and Anacortes Maritime Heritage Center have already spoken for some of the pieces, but Northwest Seaport has extended its initial November 15 deadline to December 3 to allow other interested groups or individuals to submit proposals outlining what theyâ€™d do with artifacts of their choosing.
Thirty tons of scrap are available for consideration.Â Go to www.nwseaport.org to see a gallery of photographs and to download the Request for Proposals.
