History: Zane Grey, an American author, decided to seriously invest in sport fishing as a hobby in either 1924 or 1925; he went to Nova Scotia and bought the 190-foot coal schooner MARSHAL FOCH (built 1919; schooner, 3m: yacht) for his fishing expeditions. He renamed her FISHERMAN and had a twin-screw Fairbanks-Morse engine installed. The crew shipped out around November 15, 1925, without Grey, who never traveled on the vessel. For the duration of the expedition, FISHERMAN served as a floating bunk house and store ship. It took a crew of approximately seven men to run the vessel: captain (Fred Klebingat), two mates (Ernest "Shorty" Aderman, first mate; Henry Kruse, second mate), engineer, cook, cabin boy, and a radio operator. Passengers also included a photographer, Tom Middleton. The vessel had three launches accompanying the fishing party when they set out: RED, LAURIN G., and GLADIATOR. A fourth launch was later added. Grey chartered an additional two New Zealand launches as well.

History: ZAHMA (auxiliary ketch, 2m: yacht) was originally owned by Carl Shilling, of Schilling Spices, and sold to R.B. Honeyman, Jr. in 1931. Most of the photographs in this collection appear to be of the time when Honeyman was the owner. With Honeyman, the vessel traveled from Huntington, Long Island, to Pasadena, California, and then on to Honolulu, Hawaii. In early 1942, ZAHMA was acquired by the Port Director of San Diego from R.J. Reem, and less than two weeks later was placed in service for the U.S. Navy to serve in World War II. She was classified as a miscellaneous auxiliary vessel, given the designation IX-63, and was operated as a local patrol boat out of San Diego. She was then taken out of service in the spring of 1943 and struck from the Naval Record in 1944.
