For all those masochists out there, I've got one for you. This is the boat that was next to HIGHLAND LIGHT when I was after that one. Free to a good home.

Details:

1928 - 73' Staysail schooner, Marconi Rigged, 61' on deck. Edson B. Schock design. Built at Chalker & Whiting in Long Beach

Won Transpac in 1934: MANUIWA Harold Dillingham 13:12:30:51 12:09:29:56 1 A-1

Ex. HIGHLANDER, now MANUIWA. Her picture is on the wall in the LA Yacht Club with Al Christie, her original owner.

Call Henry, her owner at
1-310-710-1497. She is currently in a slip for $560 bucks a month, and he needs out now!

I was aboard her when looking at HIGHLAND LIGHT. She is hurting, but is a far nicer design than HIGLAND LIGHT. She has many neat fittings and bronze bits. Serious restoration required.

A boat with that history would make it a great restoration project. What kind of wood is she made of? Is there a survey?

I realize that this post is 4 years old now, but wonder if anyone knows what happened to the, Manu'iwa. We owned her many years ago in the 60's in Hawai'i, and even at that time she was in very poor shape. I was a very young kid at the time, and would remember that, Mr. Dillingham himself would drive down to the Ala Wai Boat Harbor, and buy us kids ice cream. Something you don't forget. He was so happy having someone working on her. She was put back together somewhat, sold, and spent many years in the, Ala Wai. But then we lost track of her. So any news would be very appreciated.

More like 14 years Bill, but good luck with your search. I hope someone here is able to offer some news for you, it’ll be interesting to see what has become of her.
