JAMAICA, Brielle, NJ – 1957
The original "JAMAICA", from Bogan's Brielle Basin, Brielle, NJ circa 1957. Stowman Shipyards, Dorchester, NJ built this 65 foot boat in 1957 and two GM 110 diesels provided the power. Captain Howard Bogan Sr. initially operated the "JAMAICA" and was later followed by Captain Dave Bogan Sr. This particularly nice picture was taken before a dodger was built around the pilothouse. She later became Captain William Egerter Jr's "DAUNTLESS" and sailed from Broadway Basin, Point Pleasant Beach, NJ. In 1974, she became the "ATLANTIS". Afterwards, she was sold, remodeled, re-powered, relocated to Cape May and renamed the "SEA STAR II". She is still in service, but as a recreational vessel.
