  • All aboard the Cobain Watertrain!

West Seattle Blog tipped me to the fact that King County Ferry District is hosting an open online survey to name two new Water Taxis serving West Seattle and Vashon Island. All of the names are inspired by local people and culture.

Clearly, the best name for the new West Seattle water taxi is the "Cobain Watertrain." For the Vashon water taxi, I'm partial to the Betty MacDonald, after the local author best known for her book The Egg and I. But there are a bunch of other options, too; you should vote by August 15th.
