Might it be a perk for tribal leaders, or
Might it be to maintain a tribal presence, in Puget Sound, for the tribe's commercial fishing interests?
Sure seems to me to be a waste of funding dollars. Let the lower tribes spend up a big boat - you know they will; freeing up funds for a more thorough local enforcement on the upper rivers' spawning grounds.
