Olmaha - 1926

Martinac Shipyard 60' (Canadian Fleet)

Olmaha is a 1926 60-footer built by J. M. Martinac in Tacoma , Washington (still in business!) She is currently based in Coal Harbour, Vancouver BC.  The name "Olmah" is an amalgamation of the names of the original owners and their daughter: OLin, MAude and HAzel Neikirk (ergo OLMAHA). (No relation whatsoever to Omaha, Nebraska!!)

Kiyi - 1926

Schertzer 50' (Pacific Northwest Fleet)

Kiyi is a classic Pacific Northwest design by Leigh Coolidge, built by the Schertzer Brothers on Lake Union. Her hull is Port Orford cedar over bent oak frames, and her house is all teak. Her original owner supplied supplied all the wood, and spent $5,280 for her construction at the Schertzer yard at the foot of Stone Way.

Fantail designs were not common on vessels less than about 65-feet, since they tend to reduce space available for accommodations.  But with her mere 10-foot beam, the effect on the 50-foot long Kiyi is stunning.

Vancouver Shipyards 60' (Canadian Fleet)

Wanderer was built by Vancouver Shipyards and launched in 1926. She was originally a gas powered boat, now converted to diesel. During WW II, Wanderer was used as a Gun Station delivery boat. LOA: 62', Beam: 13.4'

Pasado Mañana - 1927

Wilmington Boat Works 96' (Pacific Northwest Fleet)

Polaris was custom-built for attorney and financier Lee Allen Phillips in 1927, originally christened Pasado Mañana (“Get Around to It Tomorrow”). The Wilmington Boat Works used oak timbers, Douglas-fir planking, teak for the decks, mahogany finish for the cabins. As executive vice president of Pacific Mutual Life Insurance, Phillips had a hand in the construction of the Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles, and the draining of the Cienega wetlands. As president of California Delta Farms, he oversaw the conversion of over 100,000 Delta acres to agriculture, including the Jones and Rindge Tracts and King, Bacon, and Bouldin Islands, collaborating with George Shima, a Japanese immigrant known as the Potato King. Much of the acreage was leased to Chinese- and Japanese-born farmers. Phillips took the Pasado Mañana into the Delta to inspect his properties and on duck-hunting trips, and to sea after marlin and swordfish off Catalina Island. She was also a “floating hotel” for visiting VIPs like Winston Churchill and Herbert Hoover.
