In its four years of sailing along the West Coast of the United States, the Golden Rule has visited communities in Humboldt Bay, Eureka, San Francisco, Monterrey, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Long Beach, San Diego, Portland, Seattle, Bremerton, and Bangor. The Golden Rule has sailed twice to Ensenada, Mexico, to visit with Deported U.S. veterans.

The Golden Rule was found derelict in Humboldt Bay, California in 2011. A local shipyard owner Leroy Zerlang discovered the history of the boat and asked for help in restoring her. Two Veterans for Peace chapters in Northern California volunteered. With Chuck Dewitt as project manager, many volunteers helped with the restoration over the next four years.

In speaking about the mission of the Golden Rule, Gerry Condon, National president of Veterans For Peace said, "We are sailing for a nuclear-free world and a peaceful, sustainable future. Now it is time for us to visit the island nations of the Pacific, which have suffered so much damage from nuclear testing and military bases."
