This is a discussion thread for the following file:<br><br><b><a href=http://www.googleearthhacks.com/dlfile20217/Lumber-Schooner-Wawona.htm>Lumber Schooner Wawona</a></b><br><br>On September 12th 1897, master shipbuilder Hans Bendixen launched the largest three masted schooner ever built on the west coast of North America, the Wawona. Built for the Dolbeer &amp; Carson Lumber Company of Eureka California, Wawona is 165 feet long with a 36 foot beam and a depth of 12 feet 3 inches. At the turn of the century, there were over 300 commercial schooners like Wawona in the proud Pacific sailing fleet. Today, only two of these ships still exist: Wawona, at Northwest Seaport in Seattle, and her sister ship the C.A.Thayer at the National Maritime Museum in San Francisco.<br><br><img src=http://www.googleearthhacks.com/images/new/080505/566139za.jpg>

Is there a particular reason you feel compelled to steal the work of the people on Google Earth Community?

Enable your GEC layer, and you'll see that SpiderX22 has stolen most of his posts from other people's work: mine, Delta102, Munden, earthgoogler, SOC, jclark, PriceCollins, just to name a few.

Do you have a procedure to deal with thieves?
