The crew of the "LOREE" from Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, NY circa 1945. From left to right are Captain Adam 'Eddie' Doll, Mate Eddie Enders, and a young Bill Doll (age 15). The "LOREE" was owned by partners Adam 'Eddie' Doll and Mike Scarpati. Captain Adam 'Eddie' Doll began sailing party boats in 1917 with his first boat, the "JUPITER". He later operated the "ADA L", the "ANGLER", the "ANGLER II", the "LOREE" and the "DOLLSON". His son, Captain Bill, took over the "DOLLSON" and went on to own the "JET" from Sheepshead Bay. (Captain Bill still operates the "JET" today.) Photo courtesy of Captain Bill Doll.
