On this day in Mendocino history…

June 24, 1926 – The Norwegian steamer Marie Bakke, the third largest ship ever to enter Mendocino Bay, arrived to take on 40,000 railroad ties. She was a new boat, and this was her first cargo. After considerable maneuvering, she tied up at the mooring in the bay. She was piloted in by Capt. Bostrom.

The vessel had a capacity of 8000 tons, was 375 feet in length, and drew 30 feet of water when loaded. One and a half million feet of sawed ties were loaded at Mendocino, then she departed for Noyo to take on additional ties and Seattle to complete her cargo. Her ultimate destination was South America.

“The big vessel attracted a lot of attention when she came in and numerous people have gone aboard her to look her over.”
