    It was the young lad aboard the Pathfinder with to much drink it was a shame as John and his brothers put a lot of work doing up the Arctic Star.
    Yes that is Charlie standing on the wall along side the Minnie Dan mcGilvary & rOBERT CONNEL,
    Arctic Star did'nt need much doing to her when she left ma/aig she had a new W/HOUSE, ENGINE, WINCH, Hull  was first class new keel 1966, a boat that you could make a good living with. a good old lady that one.
