The year was 1907. Congress raised its salaries to $7,500. Teddy Roosevelt shook 8,513 hands in one day. (Who was counting?) The 91-foot, Norwegian-built, whaling ship Gunnar Hamundarson launched from the Nyland Versted yard. And Yachting Magazine debuted. The whaling ship, still floating today (and currently for sale), has enjoyed an impressive history, from her original use to being a private yacht for the chairman of King Oscar sardines to serving as a World War II patrol boat to having her current charge as a coastal freighter. To survive and thrive, the ship has completed nine refits and morphed with the times — much akin to how Yachting has had an impressive history and evolved to remain the go-to source for on-the-water enthusiasts.
