$194.95

Sylvan Model Kit

HO Scale Pacific Coast Lumber Boat based on the S. S. Tiverton owned by Olsen & Mahoney

HISTORY

The steam ship Tiverton was typical of wooden Pacific Coast Lumber ships known as “stream schooners” built in the late 1800s and early 1900s. These steam schooners originated when some enterprising mariner placed a small boiler and engine in a sailing schooner. There were designed to carry sawn lumber from ports in northern California, Washington and Oregon to the burgeoning cities of San Francisco and Los Angeles. They ranged in size from about 125 feet to over 200 feet. The Tiverton at just over 150 feet was one of the smaller ones. She was built at Hoquiam, Washington in 1906. In 1933 she ran aground and was wrecked on Humboldt Bar.
