The William H. Short photographs (P94-039, SAFR 24437) consists of black-and-white and color photographs of Pelican sailboats,
the first Pelican Chloe Maru, Bill Short and his family from 1958-1993.
Tugboat captain William Short designed the San Francisco Pelican, a twelve foot design registered in the One Design class
in 1959. This type of vessel is small, safe, and easily tailored so that it can be built at home inexpensively.
