Cutty Sark [British ship fire]

Off topic

From: "Wendell Huffman" wwhuffma@clan.lib.nv.us

Sorry for the topic swing, but seeing you are in England I have to ask:

Do you know if Cutty Sark was demasted before or by the fire? I hope the spars and rigging were removed for some reason before the fire and that they are thus saved. A really sad event to be sure.
