Tracking the history of a boat is always challenging. Previous owners are deceased, or can't be found, or no longer remember the details. We are fortunate that much of Mañana's history is known. But there are a few gaps. For example, the US Coast Guard abstract of title indicates that the Campbell's named the boat Impulsive. However, when wooding the transom for repainting, the bottom layer of paint had the name "Polar Beacon" painted on it. There is no record of that name, so where it comes from is a mystery.
