Copies of newspaper articles regarding Paul and Mollie Satko and their children from the SEATTLE TIMES, 1940-1943. Paul Satko, Jr. family on the boat they built, ARK OF JUNEAU, attracted many curious onlookers prior to its launch on November 6, 1939, into the Tacoma city waterway heading for Alaska. Two men in a rowboat, men balancing on floating logs, and others on a small tug all survey the 15 ton vessel. 4,000 - 5,000 rainsoaked Tacomans were cheering as the much talked about ARK completed a successful launching. The fact that the boat got stuck half way down the ways and had to be pulled out by the Foss tug DIAMOND B, did not dampen the spirits of either the Satko family or spectators
