The Wawona, a historic lumber schooner built in 1897 and one of the last two surviving ships of her class, is seen in this July 30, 2003, photograph in Seattle. At the time, the ship was in need of $2 million to be properly restored. That money fell short two years later with a 2005 estimate of $15 million needed for restoration and $1 million annually for maintenance.
