Professional Mariner April 11 2014 Linda Evans photoARTHUR FOSS in PROFESSIONAL MARINER 
Professional Mariner magazine author, John Gormley, writes, "Arthur Foss is in great shape — for a wooden-hull tug built 125 years ago. Up until the 1960s, the 120-foot, 700-hp tug earned its keep for Foss Maritime hauling log rafts to lumber mills in Puget Sound." The four-page article outlines the tug's condition and Seaport's hope to get her sailing again. The article represents an incredible 125th birthday gift to the tug.
