Tacoma Boat. "Sonja" was another in a long history of fine fishing vessels built in Tacoma. Tacoma, Commencement Bay and Point Defiance were all known along the Pacific Coast of the United States because of their exceptional working boats built in Tacoma.

They plied their trades with the knowledge they had gained with the materials so abundant in the northwest, starting with all wood boats and then changing to steel. The designs continued to be as beautiful as any boats built. TPL-8976
