The Falie was an old Ketch built in Holland in 1921 but was transformed a number of times during its lifetime and to date is still operating albeit a part of the Ketch preservation Society at Port Adelaide.

I was privileged to spend some time on here back in the early 1970's on the KI run as well as the Stenhouse Bay Gypsum trade. All good experiences for me and I wouldn't have swapped that for all the tea in China.
