Maritime Museum, San Diego: 37 reviews and 99 photos

  © 2006 - Maritime Museum of San Diego
by Yaqui

Built by Manuel Goularte, Pilot served for 82 years as San Diego’s official pilot boat, what that is when Harbor Pilots are used to help steer very large vessels in and out of ports safely. During WWII she was put into service as patrol boat and still carrying passengers to and from other ships. Secretary of War authorized the display of six chevrons on her stack for every six months of service. She was docked in 1996 due to her deteriorating condition and donated to the Maritime Museum where volunteers lovingly restored her to her former glory.

This vessel was gone at the time, but is part of the Maritime Museum and have they give harbor tours. Check out their web line for more information Pilot Harbor Tours
