I joined this ketch when Oliver Peak's crew left him in Puntarenas, Costa Rica. Did some very good sailing (and hunting too, my Peaks forte)in the waters of Costa Rica, Panama, doing the canal and Colombia. We were joined by my friend from the states, Robert Sumpter.

Looking for anyone who knows of the whereabouts of the Ketch, owners and old crew.... A great, solid, albeit slow, sailing vessel....

Mr. Taylor and I am now in touch. Thank you to whomever forwarded him my previous communication about Black Dolphin. If you want to know more about the boat's current use, see this website - http://www.ths.edu.hk/#!the-black-dolphin/wz6tm . If you have any information about the history of the boat, particularly from 1944 when she was launched in Southern California to 1950 when the Rumseys bought her, please contact me.
