The tugboat used as the "Narcissus" in the film was then named the "Wallowa." It was leased to the filmmakers in Seattle by the Foss Launch & Tug Co. After the movie was filmed, the tugboat was refitted with a new engine and renamed the "Arthur Foss," after Thea Foss's son, who was then president of the Foss Co. Today, the tugboat "Arthur Foss" is owned by the Northwest Seaport Maritime Heritage Center. It is docked on Lake Union in Seattle, next to the Museum of History and Industry, and is open for tours on weekends. The "Arthur Foss" is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
