The steamboat L.T. Haas was a vessel that operated on Lake Washington in the first part of the 20th century.


L.T. Haas was built in 1902[1] by G.V. Johnson, who owned an early shipyard on Lake Washington.[2]

Operating career[edit]

L.T. Haas, rated at 89 tons, was originally operated by Harry Cade and the Carlson Brothers, who, doing business as the Interlaken Steamship Company, ran her on the Leschi Park-Meydenhauer Bay route. Later Captain John Anderson of Anderson Steamboat Co. acquired L.T. Haas when he merged the Interlaken concern into his own company.[3] L.T. Haas was destroyed by fire in 1909 while on the lake.[4]
