Tug Boat to Haul
Oil on Columbia
Leaves Seattle .
Barges to be Pulled;
Storage Tanks in
. Place Near Attalia.
The "Mary Grail," a 60-foot twin
screw shallow draft diesel tug, which
will operate on the Columbia river
hauling barges of petroleum prod
ucts to Wallula, was launched Tues
day at Seattle, according to Nard
Jones of that city. The "Mary
Grail" was built for Kirk Thomson
of Spokane, distributor of General
Petroleum corporation products in
that area. It was designed and built
by H. C. Hanson of Seattle and is the
first of a fleet of a half dozen to be
used to haul gasolines and oils up
the Columbia.
Two 55,000 gallon storage tanks
have been constructed on the Co
lumbia above Wallula and near At
talia by Thompson, who plans to
transport the petroleum products on
to Spokane by auto truck. Thomp
son was interviewed the first of the
week in Sopkane by Herbert G.
West of Walla Walla, executive vice
president of the Inland Empire Wa
terwavs association.
The new tugboat is being taken
down the coast from Seattle to Port
land Fridav by its designer who
will meet Thompson there. They
plan to go up the river to Wallula.
Jones predicts the boat represents
a new type "which may revolution
ize river boats." He feels encouraged
for the revival of interest in trans
porting products on the Columbia
by the fact that this new venture is
backed by a legitimate business con
cern. An initial installation of two steel
barges, each of 100,000-gallon capac
ity, is planned by Thompson, he told
West. He will operate on the Co
lumbia as a common carrier.
"This is the first industrial im
provement coming as a direct result
of the river development program of
the Waterwavs association," West
At present Thompson is hauling
his supplies to Spokane from Seat
tie by truck.
"This is the second company
come in with its own private capital
to use the Columbia river," West
said. The other is the Inland Nav
igation company which plans
start a river boat service to Dent'i
Landing next spring and service to
Iewiston a year later.
"Thompson is investing $100,000 in
this enterprise," West added
gives weight to the association's ar
gument that the river will be used
when it is improved. In this in
stance Thompson can only derive a
profit frow a one-way haul. There
fore investigation must have proved
that the saving would be substantial
to justify the investment.
"Thompson feels the river can be
used a large part of the year and he
has faith that the government will
continue an orderly and progressive
development of the Columbia and
Snake rivers."
