SHAMROCK, Point Pleasant Beach, NJ – 1975
Captain 'Jack' Bogan's "SHAMROCK" from Point Pleasant Beach, NJ circa 1975. Sutton Boat Works built this steel-hulled vessel in 1966 at Tarpon Springs, FL and she first sailed as the "CAPT. BILL II". Sold in 1984 she relocated to Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, NY and sailed under the same name. The federal government confiscated the "SHAMROCK" in 1985 and later sold her at auction. She is has since been completely remodeled and is presently sailing on the St. Croix River as the dinner cruise vessel "AFTON PRINCESS" from Afton, MN. Photo Courtesy of Captain 'Jack' Bogan Sr.
