In 1962, the Gillikin-built "MISS TAMBO" replaced the "TAMBO III" and the family business continued for another generation. Ed Keefe Jr. worked the deck of the "MISS TAMBO" along with his Dad until entering the US Navy. In 1984, Captain Ed retired, sold the "MISS TAMBO" and moved to Florida where he continues to enjoy the warm climate and the good life. Photo courtesy of Ed Keefe Jr.
