Eureka’s dolos has been re-homed.
After community members rallied last month to save the hulking maritime artifact from potential annihilation, Monday morning the dolos in question made its scheduled move from Broadway on down to Madaket Plaza where it will now enjoy serene views of Humboldt Bay for the foreseeable future. A concrete chunk of Eureka’s history has been preserved. Let us bask in the win together.
The Outpost rolled out of bed at a stupidly early hour this morning to witness the dolos’ journey. We snapped a few photos, as we do. We also chatted up Madaket Captain and dolos preservation enthusiast Leroy Zerlang on why he believes moving heaven and earth to find a way to lug a 40-ton dolos was worth the trouble.
Hear Zerlang make his case in the clip below and/or let your eyes gaze upon photos of Monday’s dolos caravan even farther down.
