    Iwas going through my closet and found a Kelley hat from years ago.
    Looked them up on line and found they sold in 2008.
    Kelley's was, I believe, the oldest continuosly family owned boatyard in the US, having started in 1864.
    It was built on the wharf that Melville sailed from on the Acushnet about 20 years earlier!
    144 years in the same family, that's pretty impressive.
