Thayer was one of 123 three-masted schooners built on the West Coast for the lumber trade. From 1895 until 1912 she sailed for the E.K. Wood Lumber Company of San Francisco.
C.A. Thayer sets out for Bristol Bay, Alaska in 1912, with supplies and workers for the salmon season.
"She was a steady little ship. She wasn't too fast to sail and beat, or anything like that, but she was a solid-built ship."
Captain Emil Anderson,
