About this title

Synopsis:

Before the advent of roads in western Washington, steamboats of the Mosquito Fleet swarmed all over Puget Sound. Sidewheelers, stern-wheelers, and propeller-driven, they ranged from the tiny 40-foot Marie to the huge 282-foot Yosemite, and from the famous Flyer to the unknown Leota. Floating stores like the Vaughn and shrimpers like the Violet sailed the same waters as the elegant Great Lakes lady, the Chippewa, and the homely Willie. A few, like the Bob Irving and Blue Star, died spectacularly or, like Major Tompkins, shipwrecked after a short time, while others began new lives as tugboats or auto ferries; some even survive today as excursion boats like the Virginia V. From 1853 to modern car ferries in the 1920s, this volume chronicles the heyday of steamboating―a unique segment of maritime history―from modest launch to sleek liner.

About the Author:

Jean Cammon Findlay is the daughter, granddaughter, and niece of Puget Sound captains and engineers. Robin Paterson is the owner and captain of the Joe and collector of Mosquito Fleet photographs and ephemera. The images in Mosquito Fleet of South Puget Sound come from the many local historical societies in the south Sound as well as Paterson’s personal collection.
