Jan. 25, 2015: Rigging is secured after cruises by the tall ships Hawaiian Chieftain, left and Lady Washington in Ventura Harbor. Since 2006, the two tall ships visited ports all along the West Coast. In June 2019, the Hawaiian Chieftain failed a U.S. Coast Guard Inspection. Ship operator, Gray's Harbor Historical Seaport Authority, reports that repairs would exceed the value of the ship. In February 2020, the non-profit HGGSA announced the retirement of the Hawaiian Chieftain and focused on Lady Washington operations.
