From the 13-November-1898 San Francisco Call. WA Coulter did many maritime drawings for the newspaper.

Most of the American whaling fleet wintered in San Francisco Bay, especially in freshwater Richardson Bay, where marine borers could not attack the hulls, which were often not sheated with copper.
