The Malahat

The Malahat was a five masted schooner.  She sailed down the West Coast during Prohibition.  Capable of carrying over 60,000 cases of spirits, she delivered more contraband liquor than any other ship in the Pacific. Anchoring off the coast of Southern California, she delivered her spirits to rum runners who would take the precious cargo to shore to awaiting patrons.  She quickly became known as “The Queen of Rum Row”. If you drank your liquor in San Diego during Prohibition, chances are your booze came from the Malahat.
