Compadre is a 43 foot bridge-deck cruiser designed and built by the Stephens Brothers of Stockton, California.  She was constructed in 1929 of Port Orford cedar planks over white oak frames for Leland D. Adams, a mining engineer from Oakland, California. Originally powered by twin Lathrop engines, she is currently powered by twin Chrysler Crowns installed in the 1950's. Her current owners purchased her in 2007 in Northern California and transported her to the Northwest.  Compadre is her original name and she retains most of her original interior layout and cabinetry.
