      Phelps,
      My good friend, the late Jack Dickerhoff ,re   rigged the Falls Of Clyde years ago.   I helped him re rig the Balclutha back around 1957.  I knew Mr Pfeiffer(Matson Navigation Company Chairman of the Board Emeritus), and sailed in the Matson ship RJ Pfeiffer named for him. As a Mate in a Matson ship Mr. Pfeiffer would call us on the radio and chat as he flew over us in his airplane..The Falls of Clyde is not a ship, but a four masted Bark(barque).
