Re: [PMMC-NLUS] Sail tanker Falls of Clyde sold and moved; to be saved?
- 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).Captain KC O'Brien, Master sail, steam and motor vessels upon oceansMasters,Mates & Pilots, ILA, AFL-CIO (ret)
