Maritime Blog - Join us HERE for a forum on original research and stories related to the artifacts, photos, documents and oral histories of the Society, as well as posts describing the work and programs of the Society. We will occasionally share pertinent posts from other maritime or historical organizations.   Several new exhibits are in the works for the McCurdy Family Maritime Gallery at MOHAI that will help visitors understand the realities of navigation in the days when water was the primary highway for travelers around Puget Sound.
