This vessel was a relief lightship (1905-1942 and 1945-1960) for the U.S. Pacific coast, and was a training vessel during WWII. After it was decommissioned in 1960, it served as a coastal freighter (circa 1961-64 under the name Ark), and later as a fishing boat in Alaska (circa 1964-1978 under the name Claire Anne). Rick Bennett of the USCG Lightship Sailors Association rediscovered the ship in 2003. It's now called the Maudi Morgan and is a fishing boat near Vancouver.
