When I went in San Francisco Maritime Museum ( I always search for maritime museums) I did not visit the ships but only the main building.
But I remember to have seen a small wooden sailboat , not larger than 19 ft., that came from Japan
in a solo navigation .
A crazy thing.
Do you know something about?

Yes, you are refering to the "Mermaid" at 19 ft, sailed from Japan in 1962 in 94 days; this was the first solo-navigation of the Pacific by anyone; read more at: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenichi_Horie .... Also, the "Balclutha" info at: www.nps.gov/safr/historyculture/historic-vessels.htm .... Enjoy !
