yacht is purchased by George Converse and his beautiful wife, former silent film star, Mary Stuart. Both experienced and able
yachters, they bring the yacht on her own hull from the east coast, through the Panama Canal to her new home in Southern California.
The yacht stays busy in the Southern California social scene, as George Converse serves as Commodore of the Newport Harbor
Yacht Club in 1940. She also picks up several movie roles including use as a prop in the Shirley Temple movie
"Captain January" and the Claudette Colbert/Rudy Vallee movie "The Palm Beach Story." She travels back and forth
between Long Beach, Los Angeles and Catalina Island.
The busy social scene of the late 1930's and early 1940's is abruptly interrupted by World War II and the yacht is conscripted into service as a Navy Patrol vessel.
