Deck capstans were used on sailing ships centuries ago to handle anchor lines on the heaviest of the ship's tackle. This cast iron geared capstan was recovered from the sunken schooner Samuel P. Ely at Two Harbors, Minnesota, where the ship sunk in 1896. The big 7-master was built in 1869, salvaged for the museum by Elmer Engman[,] Dave Anderson, John Simenson and Randy Bradford.
