The Mt. Vernon newspaper ran a photo and caption on an unidentified date courtesy of THE SEATTLE DAILY TIMES. See 1999.030.102. The title was "New Snagboat Soon to Float."
"The new $125,000 snagboat, being built for the United States Army District Engineer, is nearing completion at the Lake Union Drydock & Machine Works. In this photograph, the new craft, a sternwheeler, is shown close to the old snagboat, the W.T. PRESTON, whose place she will take. The new boat also will be called the W.T. PRESTON. The snagboat will be used to clear the navigable rivers and waters of the Puget Sound area. The old W.T. PRESTON will be put up for sale soon, the District Engineer's office said today."
