The MV Kalakala ferry operates in Rich Passage in Puget Sound, circa 1940. The Kalakala operated in Puget Sound from 1935 to 1967, then was retired and sold to a fish-processing company in Alaska. After decades of use as a cannery structure, the Kalakala was purchased by an individual in the 1990s and towed back to Seattle, with the intent to be restored as a museum or a working vessel. Years of missed deadlines and financial difficulties followed, and the deteriorating ferry changed hands multiple times, eventually being scrapped in 2015.
