Compass for the Week of 3/19/18

For many years Port Townsend has been the working port of choice for commercial fisher-folk from far and wide to spend their winters preparing their boats for the next summer’s fishing season.  But this winter there has been a notable lack of commercial fishing vessels — or other kinds of boats, for that matter — hauled out to make repairs and improvements.  This week, in a Compass episode we are titling Empty Boat Haven Blues, we talk with a couple of local commercial fisherwomen and others to find out why.  (Interviews with Dave Thompson, JennTakaki, Becca Argo, and Pam Petranek.)
