With Lake Union becoming more crowded, new buoys installed to mark seaplane runway
SEATTLE -- Some say the seaplanes that take off and land from Lake Union are a big part of what Seattle is all about. “The float planes are a nostalgia of Seattle. You can't take away the float plane. It`s a big part of the city,” said James Baker, general manager of Seattle Boat Company. “I’ve grown up here and this lake is busier and busier every year and the boats get bigger and all of that,” said Baker.
