Farewell, Kalakala

Farewell, Kalakala

R.I.P. MV Kalakala

The Kalakala spent her final days moored on the Hylebos Waterway in Tacoma, Washington where owner Karl Anderson tried his best to keep her out of the scrap yard. Hull damage and overall condition had reached an economic point of no return – it was estimated in 2014 that efforts to save the classic ship might eclipse the 25 million dollar mark!
