C.A. Thayer: The Last of the Lumber Schooners

If you’ve ever visited the San Francisco waterfront, you may have see a three masted lumber schooner at Hyde Street Pier. The C.A. Thayer was built in 1895 at the Bendixen Shipyards near Eureka, California, and is the last surviving lumber schooner.

Recently restored, a Youtube video about her was put together by the San Francisco National Historic Park. It’s posted on the Current Projects page of the San Francisco National Maritime Park Association’s website.

I’ve also posted it below, in case their page changes. It’s a wonderfully done video. Please consider visiting the Park Associations website to become a member or to make a donation to future projects and educational programs.
