Spring Rendezvous at the Net Shed

Monday, April 2nd, 2012

We had an amazing turn out with over 50 folks representing 18 tugs. Our thanks to De Whittier for hosting the rendezvous, what an amazing space to have a party! RTA members new and old brought an incredible amount of food to make it one of our best potlucks ever.

We’re looking for ideas for a summer rendezvous sometime in July maybe? Someplace economical for our larger tugs.

Retired Tugboat Association


March 30, 31 and April 1

Whittier’s dock & net shed in Gig Harbor

3309 Harborview Drive

Potluck at 5 pm on Saturday afternoon

Since De has the property for sale, this is likely the last chance to see the fantastic living and party space that Peter and De created. You have to see it to believe it.

There is room for 4 of the smaller tugs at Whittier’s float. Others can tie at the city dock, only one block away. We can make a list of motels and B&B’s available, or check out this list of places from Trip

Please RSVP to Robin or Kae Paterson, 253-858-3147 or, and let us know if you are coming, for how many days and if by boat or car, so we can make plans.
