Northwest Seaport is honored to have been invited by the National Park Service to screen the new documentary, "Arthur Foss: Iconic Tugboat of the Northwest," at their Seattle facility. Students from the local Seattle Art Institute directed, filmed and interviewed a former Arthur Foss crew member, a shipwright, historians, a nautical archaeologist, and Northwest Seaport board and staff members to capture this incredible story. Photos from various collections, such as the Foss Maritime Co and renowned tug captain, historian and previous owner of Fremont Tugboat Co, Mark Freeman, were used to help provide the visual back story.
