Nicknamed “the floating White House,” this was the Presidential yacht for FDR. A private yacht today, she cruises the San Francisco Bay area. In keeping with her history, she has two high-frequency (HF) radios in her radio room. While they’re not operational, a Ham radio (which operates on the same band) was recently donated and is in use, to the delight of guests.
