storming” session. The port is looking for public input on potential expansion plans. Phillips gave the board four alternatives, each with two phases; all alternatives extend the current docks west into the bay, and many alter the current breakwater. The expansion would allow for larger vessels to dock; ships like the American Cruise Line and Argosy Cruise need a minimum 12-foot depth to dock, currently unavailable at the port’s commercial dock. When the American Cruise Line sailed into Poulsbo in May, the ship anchored just south of Liberty Bay Marina and used a smaller boat to transport passengers into downtown Poulsbo. The cruise line will be returning in the fall. Miller is continuing the work of previous manager Kirk Stickels, who began inquiring how to bring Argosy Tours into Poulsbo.
