Clipper Ship King Philip Resurfaced

If you're in the San Francisco area you may have had the opportunity to see the clipper ship King Philip resurface at times when there is a low tide! This occurred in prior years in May, and also in 1983.

Though much of the ship is no longer intact, it is said that the King Philip Clipper ship is "the most complete remains of an American medium Clipper."

The wreckage wasn't one that contained treasure as the ship was empty when it ran aground in 1878.

Considering the King Philip first set sail in 1856, she had time to develop a rich history before the fateful day she broke apart.
