Restoration of the C.A. Thayer (built 1895; schooner, 3m) records, 1983-1984 (SAFR 23383, HDC 1640) were created by Stephen
W. Hastings, former Marine Maintenance Foreman at the National Maritime Museum, to chronicle the 1983-1984 restoration of
the lumber schooner.
The C.A. THAYER (built 1895; schooner, 3m) is a wooden-hulled, three-masted schooner, designed for carrying lumber. She was
built in 1895 in Northern California at Hans D. Bendixsen's shipyard in Fairhaven, CA. The original hull was made of dense,
old-growth Douglas fir carefully chosen for shipbuilding.
