Coastal Nostalgia: Polar Bear Schooner - West Wind Hardwood

“The year of 1913 will stand out for a long in the record of my photographic achievements,” says author and photographer, Will E. Hudson. He was called up by Capt. Louis Lane of the power schooner Polar Bear with plans to take a scientific and hunting party north; a wonderful chance for a moving picture man.

The Polar Bear is a husky little ship, being 76 ft. in length on the waterline, 20 ft. beam with a modified knock-type 75 hp Frisco Standard engine.
