The two-masted pygmy trading schooner "Equator" inspired passengers Robert Louis Stevenson and Lloyd Osbourne in 1889 to write "The Wrecker". Originally built in San Francisco in 1888 as a copra trader, it was converted to steam in 1902 and eventually abandoned in the harbor at Everett, Washington in 1953. The vessel was Everett’s first artifact placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972. The remains of the hull are protected by a shed near the Port of Everett’s Marina Park. Several attempts to rebuild the ship have failed, and restoration is considered unlikely.
