Goodbye Wapama

Lumber schooner Wapama is now officially abandoned though it sounds like saving it never really caught on.

Lumber schooner Wapama, last of kind, is condemned

Re: Goodbye Wapama

A shame really. I have been watching her slow demise thru WoodenBoat, and other mags, for years.

It is a shame indeed. The NPS has a lot of other places to spend the money it would take to refit her.

Re: Goodbye Wapama

Don't forget Wawona. Not sure Wapama can be called the last of her kind...

Re: Goodbye Wapama

The time to look after these boats was long ago before the cost got so great. Not enough folks care about maritime history I suppose.

Re: Goodbye Wapama

The poor hogging ship sat at the Corp's of Engineers dock in Sausalito for many years. I was wondering what became of it...now I know. Too bad it was left to rot. It's sad to lose maritime history.
