Hood Canal

In 1899, service to Hood Canal from Seattle's Pier 3 (now Pier 54) was effected by the propeller steamer Dode. A typical wooden boat of the Mosquito Fleet, the 99' long Dode left Seattle every Tuesday on the run to Kingston, Port Gamble, Seabeck, Brinnon, Holly, Dewatto, Lilliwaup Falls, Hoodsport, and, at the end of what must have been a long day, Union City. The next morning she'd return to Seattle on the same route.
