"KELPIE" Rail down off Anacapa Island......

We've got just about everything pictured aboard the "Kelpie" in out little store. Life rings-wood ship's wheels-blocks-booms-sails (thousands of them) turnbuckles-stanchions-line-compasses and once in a while a nice binnacle and thousands of other useful items for you classic schooner and your modern fiberglass sloop. Crew members pictured are Bob Dixson at the wheel and Hank Hill with the worried look. My dad, George Minney purchased the Harvey Gamage 65' schooner "Kelpie" after WW II for $6000.00. We kept it in Newport Beach, California, and had it in our family for 30 years.
