Oil-drilling ship's passage: Little notice here, but protests in Everett

The Shell oil-derrick ship Noble Discoverer is escorted by tugs past Point No Point en route to the Port of Everett, May 12. The ship passed the point without fanfare — on the beach were a lone fisherman, a Navy veteran with binoculars and two women out for a walk. But in Everett, 10 kayakers met the oil rig, which has a 175-foot-tall oil derrick, to protest its arrival in Puget Sound.  - Richard Walker
