Default Some more

I fished on the Claire out of World's Fair Marina many moons ago. They had awesome Steward sandwiches! lol! How about the MissTake out of Highlands, NJ with Capt. Whitey Morenz? He was one of the best jigging captains around. The North Star in City Island. Really brings back some great memories!

For those interested,,,
Brand X was a PT boat from WWII,one of the first to be built had like 3-4 inch thick sides of white pine and oak,transom was solid black oak,planks below the waterline im pretty sure were cyprus,,she was left in the original condition below decks with all the crew spaces intact. It's down in texas now at the PT boat museum, The original peconic Star was an air/sea rescue boat that was originally powered by twin 12 cyl studerbaker gas engines. believe it or not,one day when I was working on her with capt dave,with a screaming following tide,and a bit of wind to boost, at 1950RPMS them detroit diesels that powered her then ALMOST got it up on plane,but man did that old girl shake rattle but not roll.
The original scotty that was converted to a longliner,she was coming back from a tile trip in oct of 84 when she went down. That was the storm that a few lobstermens families from Mass sued the NWS because of faulty bouy data or something that didnt allow an accurate weather report of what was coming. Friend of mine (who shall remain nameless) was also out tilefishing and told me the weather report was for 20 to 25 increasing to 40+ late the next day,so everyone decided to stay the night and boogey back the next morning,But it came on faster than that and you know the rest of the story.

Default CAPT. SCOTTY III

THE CAPT. SCOTTY III WAS BUILT IN BABLYON, BY CAPT GEORGE TWEEDY WITH THE HELP OF HIS SONS WHIT AND WAYNE, AND GEORGES FATHER " GRANDPA". SHE WAS AND ALL WEATHER BOAT. WORKED ON HER FOR A FEW YEARS. HER LONGITUDINALS ARE TREE TRUNKS, AND HER RIBS ARE THE SIZE OF 4X4'S, SHE WILL BE AROUND FOR QUITE A LONG TIME. JUST LOOKING AT THE BOW SPRIT WOULD SHOW YOU HOW GEORGE BUILT A BOAT.

I believe she is an aluminum Yanks Built. Here is a Picture of the Billy Van that became a Capt Capt John Whale watch boat on the cape, Then she was the 2nd Speedy Express, and she is now the capt John from Keyport N.J.she was built side by side with the Starstream and the SuperSpray at the Gulf Craft Tibbs yard in Patterson LA.
