PENINSULA DAILY NEWS AND THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

The aging art deco ferry Kalakala has been awarded a $100,000 state history-and-heritage grant.

It’s not all its rescuers had hoped for — they requested $320,000.

But combined with a $285,000 federal grant that the Seattle City Council accepted last year, “we’re halfway to dry dock,” Kalakala Foundation President Peter Bevis said.

The new grants, both contingent in part on private matching funds, are to get Kalakala into a dry dock — expected to cost more than $700,000 — for its first hull inspection in 30 years.

Bevis is also still searching for a permanent home for the boat, which is moored at the north end of Seattle’s Lake Union.
