No way to treat a lady.
The Mary D. Hume began her career in 1880 as a coastal freighter transporting lumber, canned salmon and other products from the Oregon coast to San Fransico, California. Then in 1890 the Hume was purchased by a whaling company and put into service as a whaling vessel for ten years in the Arctic Ocean. In 1909 she was outfitted as a tug boat by her new owners, but then became an Alaskan halibut boat for a very short time before spending her final 60 years of service back as a tug boat once again. Her total number of years in operation: 97!
Interestingly, the Mary D. Hume's final resting place is within a few hundred feet of her birthplace....along the Oregon Coast's Rogue River.
