The Alma is a flat-bottomed scow schooner built in 1891 to haul goods on and around San Francisco Bay.
Alma is similar to scows that were launched and sailed on Chesapeake Bay, the Gulf Coast, the Great Lakes, inland rivers, and other coastal waters of the United States. No scow schooners save Alma are known to survive afloat in the United States. In 1988, she was designated a National Historic Landmark and is now one of the exhibits of the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park and is to be found moored at the park’s Hyde Street Pier.
