The name on the trawler's stern indicated that the boat is La Rata Bastarda out of Seattle.
Platypus Marine is a repair company; the boat is in the boatyard for repair or maintenance work.
The outdoor fire in the boatyard is producing thick smoke — one witness described it as yellowish in color — and the Port Angeles Fire Department asked for additional units from Clallam County Fire District No. 2 to help fight it.
We will update with details as soon as possible. Please check back.
