Gilminuial is a Ranger ship which sails up and down the river Baranduin, providing supplies to the Wardens of Annúminas in the North. Yearly (September 19) a great storm falls upon the ship throws its crew and cargo overboard. The ship with Captain Aranhir blows on and is stranded within Barandalf. Further south, about the area of Buckland, the cargo is scattered along the shores and crew-members Argirion and Mindambeth are found safe.
