MAGNUM FORCE, Monterey, CA – 1998
This boat was built in 1978 by East Bay Boat Works as Captain Ray Ettel's "WHITE STAR III" from Barnegat Light, NJ. In 1987, she relocated to Belmar, NJ, where she sailed as Captain Ray Burke's "OPTIMIST STAR". She was sold in 1990 and made the long journey to the west coast where she sailed as the MAGNUM FORCE from Monterey CA, and then as the PACIFIC EXPLORER from Monterey CA. The boat presently sails as the whale watcher SEA GODDESS from Monterey, CA. Photo courtesy of Ed Keefe.
