The hull is supported by a solid oak keel running the entire length of the yacht. Bisecting the keel at regular intervals, solid white oak ribs and teak frames are attached. The hull is carvel planked horizontally with 2/1/2” thick Douglas-fir. The thickness of the hull’s planking increases to 8” thick at the garboard strake near the keel. It is fastened with silicone bronze screws. The vessel was completely restored and refastened between 1966 and 1993. Hull has been again completely restored in 2017-2018 to include new planking (72 replaced) and refastening using galvanized screws. The yacht’s hull is covered by a main deck made of 2/1/2” teak planking. Much of the original teak deck was covered by marine grade plywood overlain with a layer of fiberglass matting and a topcoat of watertight membrane during the time the boat was a research vessel. This decking has since been removed and in 2018 all teak decking was restored to as-new condition. The 2018 survey states that: "No soft wood was found in the main hull, deck house structure and decking. The vessel is excellently maintained by an accomplished wood worker NO AREAS OF DETERIORATION WERE FOUND."

Inside the hull, the accommodation deck is located beneath the main deck with bilge space located beneath the accommodation deck.

Accommodation

Total # of berths 11
No. of double berths 2
No. of single berths 6
No. of crew berths 1
Cabin(s) 5
Sink 3
Shower 3
Heads 3 heads (Manual)

This vessel is undergoing restoration of the interior and some of the cabinetry has been removed. Accommodations are noted as designed.

ACCOMMODATION DECK:
The boat has two berthing cabins forward that accommodated six in upper & lower single berths. A spiral staircase aft of this area provides access to the main deck. Forward of these cabins is the ship forecastle (focsle) storage space. There is also a ladder that leads up to the exterior foredeck. A marine head compartment with stall shower is located aft to port from the forward berthing cabins.

Moving aft from the forward cabins to port a passageway leads to the aft saloon. This passageway served as the original galley, but the cabinetry and fixtures were removed as part of the current restoration. The galley was designed as a long fore-and-aft configuration. This was likely set up as a cooking facility for the crew who would serve the passengers. Opposite the galley is the engine room which includes all of the space to starboard in this section of the boat.

The galley passageway leads aft to the saloon. There is teak cabinetry, counters and drawers at the forward end of the saloon. A marine toilet compartment is located to starboard in the saloon that is currently under restoration. Two private staterooms are port and starboard aft of the saloon, each with a private marine toilet compartment. A passageway between the staterooms leads to the enclosed aft cockpit. This features teak decking, windows, and canvas to enclose the space from the outside.

MAIN AND FOCSLE DECK:
Forward on this deck is the pilothouse. This features original equipment as well as modern navigation equipment. The pilothouse is curved in the traditional manner. Two commercial marine-quality helm chairs are mounted here. A cabin in the pilothouse provides a sleeping berth for the off-watch helmsman. The curved spiral staircase is located aft of the pilothouse and leads to the Accommodation Deck below.

Aft of the pilothouse is the original Smoking Lounge space. This was converted to a laboratory when the boat served as a research vessel. Aft of this space is the new large Aft Salon which was added in Port Townsend by Cunningham Ship Yard and the current owner. Stairs from this area lead aft and down to the Accommodation Deck and the enclosed aft cockpit. An exterior door also provides access to the rooftop of the enclosed aft cockpit for crew activity as necessary for docking, boat launching, or exterior maintenance.

2018 Restoration Details:
Installed two new 50 gallon water heaters capable of heating water with electric elements, heat exchangers to be used with generator or with diesel water heater;
Installed Wabasto diesel water heater for heating hot water and for the hydronic heating system;
Installed 20 gallon hydronic water heater with 14 registers in all areas of the boat;
Plumbing lines established for 7 bathrooms and showers;
installed diesel Webasto hot water heater;
Built new 14 x 28 feet cabin connecting existing smoking salon and the stern deck (allowing passengers access forward to aft without walking through the galley). This new large Aft Salon was meticulously designed and built with historic replication and passenger safety in mind;
14 new windows were built to match the other windows in the boat;
2 new doors were created to match other doors in the boat;
New stairs were built to go to the fan tail from new room;
Frames of new house used old growth Douglas fir;
Windows and all interior and exterior wood used sapele wood from one tree that was custom cut to be used for this addition;
Cabin top uses 3/4 inch marine plywood with fiberglass overlay;
New iroko wood was used to match the side decks of new house with existing smoking salon side decks

This historic vessel, currently named PASADO MANANA and built by Wilmington Boat Works, represents the epitome of wooden boat building for military and commercial use. Wilmington Boat Works, a long-time fixture on the Los Angeles waterfront, built destroyers, pursuit boats, sub chasers, patrol boats and tug boats for the navy and the army. These contracts afforded the yard access to the finest of materials and shipwright skills. This boat served as a coastal patrol boat in WW II, designated as Q-109 by the US Army. Historical personages including Herbert Hoover and Winston Churchill were aboard her. It has operated as a research vessel for the USGS in the San Francisco Bay region. This research work, while designated R/V POLARIS, greatly expanded agriculture in the Sacramento River delta and led to the vessel being designated a National Historic Site in the area of Maritime History, Agriculture, Recreation/Entertainment, Science, and Maritime Architecture.

Masterful construction and use of the finest materials have kept this 1927 American heritage vessel afloat and operational to this day. An extensive (and costly) 2018 restoration in Port Townsend has secured many more years of longevity while increasing its capabilities for charter operation and liveaboard use. The details of this major refit can be found in our elsewhere in this presentation.

The newly constructed aft salon greatly expands the boat’s useful interior space. This would be an ideal living room for charter guests or liveaboard owners. The ship’s layout provides for separated private cabins and common areas and the interior has been refit to provide for seven marine head
compartments with showers. A high-capacity hydronic heating system has been installed to provide for reliable, even heat throughout the cabins and interior spaces. The electrical generation capacity is massive with the full electrical system having been upgraded and improved through the 2018 refit. And -- the painstaking work of refastening, caulking, replanking, and structural repairs has already been done! The next owner has the opportunity to customize the interior design to suit his or her requirements -- this is the fun part of any restoration, and will mainly be in the area of cabinetry and fixtures as the plumbing, rewiring, and installation of systems and appliances has been completed.

The boat comes with an extensive collection of materials ready for use to finalize the project, and which will underscore her historical character.

All classic boats like this one need ongoing cosmetic maintenance. The boat exterior now requires painting and refinishing of some varnished components, as is evident in
our photos. But, this is cosmetic work as the structure of the boat has been surveyed as sound and the restoration thoroughly documented. This vessel currently is fully
operational. The planned conversion for charter use has been interrupted due to the owner's change of plans and the death of the lead shipwright, resulting in this unique offering.

If you have big plans and are seeking to own a classic boat with a truly unique heritage for long-distance voyaging or charter opportunities this one is worth your consideration.
