Background
BALCLUTHA was a steel-hulled ship built by Charles Connell and Company in Glasgow, Scotland, in 1886. She served in the Europe-San Francisco grain trade and Pacific Coast lumber trade. In 1904, BALCLUTHA was sold to the Alaska Packers Association for use as a salmon packet. She was renamed STAR OF ALASKA in 1906. In 1933, she was sold to Frank Kissinger who renamed her PACIFIC QUEEN and exhibited her as a pirate ship. In 1954, she was purchased by the San Francisco Maritime Museum, and was restored to her former appearance and name. Today, BALCLUTHA is preserved as a museum ship at the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park.
