Built in 1942 this 136 foot wooden hull Motor Minesweeper YMS 328, U.S. Navy operated in the Aleutian Islands, Alaska.  It was modified into a private yacht by a lumber tycoon Max Wyman of Seattle, WA in 1956.  He sold it to John Wayne in 1962.

He owned it until he passed away in 1979.

Hand painted RECTANGULAR patch by Dougie Mann.

"Boat Hat x Wild Goose" - This patch is part of a collaboration with John Wayne Enterprises.  John Wayne's son, Ethan Wayne, gave us a rare journey through their extensive archival imagery of life aboard the Wild Goose and regaled us the stories of what it was like growing up taking trips all over the world and the kind of father John Wayne was.
