The CA Thayer 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.
She sailed with a small crew consisting of four seamen, two mates, a cook, and the captain.
