Captain Apel eventually became Dockmaster and after that, became the President of Starn's Fishing Fleet and Restaurant when Captain Clarence Starn passed away in 1969.
Captain Clarence Starn was the original owner and operator of Captain Starn's until he passed away in 1969. His namesake restaurant and fleet of fishing and excursion boats was a seaside staple at Atlantic City for decades. Photo courtesy of Ann Apel Eble.
