Description Anacortes Daily Mercury newspaper article, September 24, 1946, reads: "JAYCEES DELIVER BOAT TO TACOMA, Mr. and Mrs. James McClenney, Mr. and Mrs. Jack smith and Mike Caspar went to Tacoma last Sunday, taking with them the 16 foot "Smithbilt" boat which was awarded as a door prize at the Jaycee Salmon Derby dance, held in Anacortes on September 14th. The boat was presented to Jack Stinson, of Tacoma, who was visiting in Anacortes with Mr. and Mrs. O. B. Herrick when tickets to the dance were being sold.

Assisting with the presentation were Charles Thompson, president of the Tacoma Junior Chamber of Commerce, and Dale Sailor, vice-president of the organization.

Stinson, recently discharged from the U. S. Coast Guard, plans to enter college this fall to study journalism and law. He said he will name his new boat the Astrid.

After disposing of the boat, the Anacortes folk went on to Puyallup, where they visited the Western Washington fair during the afternoon and evening."
