    Chief Mate's Gear Book for S. S. Admiral Farragut

    Good. Hardcover. A manuscript notebook of the chief mate's notes for the S. S. Admiral Farragut of the Pacific Steamship Company. Green cloth boards with a handwritten title are slightly bowed. Soil on boards and a few pages. Binding tight. Unusually sewn through the front board with coated copper wire are five folded typewritten pages giving statistics on the ship such as tonnage, length, machinery dimensions, fuel capacity, dining seats, and number of first class and steerage passengers accomodated (92 and 111). Pasted onto the first page is a typewritten page signed by a port captain noting how the book should be kept. Tipped onto another page is a billhead of the Pacific Steamship Company with repairs filled in. The constant maintenance of the steamer is recorded here, from painting life boats to cleaning and oiling the anchor chain and overhauling the gin blocks. Entry dates range from 1928-1932, filling about 36 pages of the notebook. The Admiral Line of ships operated on the West Coast from 1916-36 under the Pacific Steamship Company, and the S. S. Admiral Farragut was scrapped in 1935. ; 7 1/2" x 4 3/4" .
