From the scores of wooden three-masted schooners built in the 19th and early 20th centuries for service in the West Coast lumber trade, when these plans were drawn in 1986, Wawona was one of only two known to be preserved. Wawona was designed for the Dolbeer & Carson Lumber Company of Eureka, California to transport more than 500,000 board feet of lumber per voyage from from the Pacific Northwest to ports further south on the coast.
Where East Coast ships of the time were built primarily of oak, Wawona was reportedly built of Douglas fir, a species more plentiful than oak on the West Coast. Upon the death of the owners of Dolbeer & Carson lumber company, Wawona was put up for sale. Wawona was laid up in Puget Sound harbor until 1953, when Montana cattle rancher, William P.
A very thorough, illustrated history titled “Pacific Schooner Wawona,” by Harriet Tracy DeLong was published in 1985 by Documentary Book Publishers Corporation of Bellevue, Washington.
The lines plans provided here were created in 1985 as part of a $2 million restoration project.
Where can a person get a set of building plans to build a model of the Wawona, for radio control?

Her schooner rig was designed to be handled by a small crew (six to ten men) without interference from large cargoes on deck. Then you can put any plans you want printed onto a USB drive and take them to a copy store like Staples and they can print them out for you.
I also downloaded all pictures of both boats, I just wish someone had the foresight to take better pictures of the Wawonas fore cabin and focsle and showed where the capstan was originally placed. Though still in sound condition, the demand for codfish had not returned to its pre-war level, and trained crews and fishermen had become harder to find. With stiff competition from more efficient, powered modern vessels, the decision was made to take her out of service.
