WHITE STAR III, Barnegat Light, NJ – 1978
The port bow section of Captain Ray Ettel's "WHITE STAR III" takes shape in 1978 at East Bay Boat Works, Harkers Island, NC. The "WHITE STAR III" sailed from Barnegat Light, NJ and later sailed as Captain Ray Burke's "OPTIMIST STAR", from Belmar, NJ. After that, 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.
