Harvy Gammage 65' schooner "KELPIE" 1928 So. Bristol, Maine
Above is my dad's schooner which we kept in the family for thirty years and moored in Newport Beach. Below is the 55' schooner "Samarang" that I raced and cruised for twenty years in So. Calif waters with my two boys, Josh and Tyler. Center is Viking #9 of eighteen that were built by my close friend and and master shipwright, Don Pedersen. Far right is the 82' Alden schooner "Serena" which I was lucky enough to make two Trans-Pac races on board and was introduced to the thrills and sometimes insanity of ocean racing.
NOW TILL DECEMBER 1, 2019 WE ARE DISCOUNTING "HIGH TECH" (ERNIE CALLS THEM PLASTIC SAILS) SAILS 40%, Many are like new and in excellent condition, MYLAR-KEVLAR-CARBON FIBER-ETC. BY-NORTH-QUANTUM-DOYLE-HOOD-ETC. When you take 40% off our already modest prices, yer gonna have trouble sleeping at night !!! This offer good till DECEMBER 1, 2019 Also, we still have too many spinnakers! From now until DECEMBER 1, 2019 you can take an additional 40% off all our symmetrical spinnakers. Many are near new and are in excellent condition. Times change, "assyos" are the rage! I carried a 2.2 oz symmetrical (both luffs the same) with a pole on a circumnavigation. It worked great! If you want to be watching the luff of a chute 24/7, check out our "assyos". P.S. Radial head chutes are an easy re-cut for a sailmaker and come out looking pretty good. Tri-radials can be re-cut to "assyos" but it's expensive and if multi-colored can look a bit weird. Stick with a one color tri-radial if you're gonna re-cut to an "assyo."
For over forty years, Minneys has been making good used sails available to skippers at affordable prices. Minney's owns every sail on the list. They are tough buyers and easy sellers. If you study their sail list, you will notice that no sail is priced over $1995.00. Minney's will quite often give you a credit on your used sail if you find one of their sails that is suitable for your needs. All sails are sold on approval. Before we ship it or you leave the store with it, it is re-measured and double checked to be certain the measurements as listed and condition are correct. If you are local, you have five days to return the sail. If we ship it to you, after you receive the sail you have five days to let us know if the sail is unsuitable and that you are returning it. If you need extra time because of bad weather etc. call or e-mail us and we'll allow more time. We use FEDEX. All sails are sold plus shipping. On a return, customer pays shipping unless he feels sail was misrepresented or measured wrong. An e-mail or phone call will probably end up with us paying the shipping.
