This vessel at Port of Anacortes Pier 2 grabbed my attention, especially because of the name “All Aboard for a Cure.” I did an Internet search, made a contact and got the following story from company representative Mark Gullickson: “In March of 2011, Harley and Lela Franco were honored by the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) in recognition of their many years of fundraising and contributions made to patients with Type 1 Diabetes. The theme of that evening, ‘All Aboard for a Cure,’ alluded to the fact that many times over the years, Harley and Lela had donated Harley Marine tugboat cruises to various galas, including the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, to help reach fundraising goals. The event that year made $2.66 million and is recognized as one of JDRF’s most successful events of all time. The name ALL ABOARD FOR A CURE recognizes Harley Marine Services’ commitment to giving back and hopes to encourage others to do so when they see the barge sailing through their waterways.”

About Photographer Steve Berentson

A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
