Sand Point Navy Station Sand Point Washington

I have created a new web site for the old navy base on Lake Washington's Sand Point. It is created to support a drive for a Navy Support Museum on the old base and the drive kick off is the holding of a Celebration the 85th Anniversary of the The First Flight Around the World which started and ended at Sand Point Washington. The base is about to be designated a National Historic Site. See:

Navy Base - Sand Point

Yesterday I learned that the first flight around the world originated in my own back yard at the old Navy Base, "Sand Point" on Lake Washington. It is near Seattle. It is hoped that a museum can be created at Sand Point where some old planes can be displayed in the old hangers. A proposal can be viewed at: where there is a link to the world flight story. I also hope a display about Navy Support can be placed in the museum, using a model of a Navy Oiler like that shown at:

Navy Oiler Museum Data

Today I sent my booklet “NEOSHO Class OILER a STORY” to the Curator of the Hampton Roads Naval Museum. He says he may be able to help promote this vision. The booklet can be viewed in pdf form at: In the transmittal letter I mentioned that this model may best be located in a museum at the Philadelphia Naval Ship Yard or the Mare Island Historic Park. The Navy says that the best place for USS Iowa is at Mare Island. Mare Island is just a couple miles west of Suisun Bay where these ship are preserved.
