This Gig Harbor fishing vessel is almost 100. Here’s the latest on its next life.

The wooden vessel, built in 1925, is looking better today. Now at the Harbor History Museum, it’s taking shape as a permanent exhibit that will tell the story of the boat and also the history of Gig Harbor’s commercial waterfront. The Shenandoah was built in the Skansie Shipyard. The Janovich family started fishing the boat in about 1967, and owner Tony Janovich donated it to the museum in 2000. Their largest catch was about 8,600 sockeye. The purse seiner was hauled out of the water in 2003, and crews have been restoring it since. Video, >click to read< 08:29
