La Merced in Anacortes

La Merced is a four-masted schooner built in 1917. She was operated by Standard Oil Company and was later converted into a cannery. She made annual trips to alaska under power and sail. After sitting idle on lake washington from 1966 until 1971 it was towed to Anacortes to be used as break water. I randomly spotted it in August 2017 while driving by. (info from
