Pictured is a Paul Luke soap stone ship's fire place. These little beauties are seldom for sale and I'm not even sure you could order a new one? Anyone know if the Paul Luke company is still in business? If you could get a new one it would probably be $2000.00 or more. Luke's company used to make Hyfield back stay levers, bronze Herreshoff break down anchors, deck prisims and other cool items found on yachts of yesteryear. The fire place is in quite good condition, could use a bit more polishing and repair of one of the little sea rails on the top. I had one aboard "Shearwater" that we would burn wood scraps or regular barbecue charcoal in. Once installed they will become the focal point of your saloon. Even after the fire goes out the soapstone holds the heat and they will stay warm for hours. Our price is $995.00. I'm guessing the weight at about 60 pounds. E-mail us for exact dimensions.
"Schooner Or Later We'll Get Our Ship Together" We came up with this Tee shirt over 30 years ago. We've sold thousands of them and they continue to be popular. A cruiser recently told us that at a beach party in Baja last year he counted twelve Minney's Tee shirts in a group of about forty people. They are a quality shirt with a pocket. Blue-Gray or Red in various sizes. Can be ordered short sleeve or long. Priced under $15.00 for the short sleeve. We also have matching base ball caps with the schooner "America" embroidered on the front.
