WHAT IS THAT: Rescue ships spotted in the South Sound

From my Inbox this morning:

I live above Titlow Beach, and we are watching a couple of boats going back and forth along the east side of Fox Island, kind of directly across from Day Island.  The boats came screaming up the sound (from the Narrows Bridge side) about ½ hour ago, and have been going back and forth since.

Is someone in the water?

Here’s what I told the reader:

According to the U.S. Coast Guard, they have two 87-foot ships in the area of Fox Island for a memorial service for a Coast Guard member that recently died.

That’s the activity you are seeing.
