Silhouette on the Strait


The profile of this ship on the Strait of Juan de Fuca caught my attention last Saturday evening. It was at considerable distance, near the Port of Port Angeles. On Sunday I learned that there was a story behind this ship. It is a 685-foot U.S. Navy Military Sealift Command cargo ship, Cape Intrepid. After an extended docking in Tacoma it was undergoing sea trials when it lost power last Saturday afternoon about 65 miles northwest of Sequim. It drifted in Canadian waters until two emergency tugs towed it to Port Angeles for evaluation. The last I read of its adventure this week was that it was towed from Port Angeles for repairs.
