I think they are doing the fishing fleets in every port of call.  With that enormous coastline and so short a growing season, Alaska settlements are never short of fishing boats.

Are those records worth taking up forum space?
I am happy to do them if they may be useful.

I think so. Right now our other ships are much older, but later we may have scribbles logs from that time/area with some of these ships mentioned.

Not much happening on the Manning.
Logs seem to end on the 30 December 1916.

The Naval History Hompage says for the Manning:  Log Period and Areas of Service: 1898-1930, East and West Coasts of US, Alaskan waters, Spanish-American War and World War 1 service.

They are probably still scanning.

They are definitely still scanning. ;D

I think many of the new ships will be giving us 20, 30 or 40 years of logs eventually.  I'm kind of looking forward to learning something of a ship's full history.

Do you think they would bother with logs much more recent than WW 1, Janet? Looking at the video showing ship traffic over time to which Philip sent us a link t, there appears to be a lot of recent ocean weather data.

The 41 years of straight service take the Bear to 1926 - very much the era of Phases 1 & 2.  The additional short service voyages include "second expedition of Admiral Richard E. Byrd to Antarctica, and again to the southernmost continent in 1941 second expedition of Admiral Richard E. Byrd to Antarctica (1934), and again to the southernmost continent in 1941." (Wiki)  She served the rest of WWII up around Greenland.  (That wonderful ice-resistant hull again.) 

I doubt very much they want her when she was a museum in LA, but those Antarctic trips may be attractive.  I really don't know, we'll have to wait for the scans.
