Prince George and Princess Pat
By Dave Kiffer

Dear SITNEWS readers,

I am working on a story for SITNEWS about the two ships that were THE Ketchikan visitor industry from the late 1940s into the early 1980s; the Canadian ships Prince George and Princess Patricia. In talking to other Ketchikan residents, I am hearing a lot of fun stories about those boats and about the industry before it became such an "industry" here. I would love to hear (and use) any stories you may have regarding those boats. Feel free to Email me at
