RANGER VII, Brooklyn, NY – 1983
Captain Mike Scarpati's "RANGER VII" may have been the prettiest party boat to sail from Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, NY. Lydia Yachts built the "RANGER VII" at Stuart, FL in 1982. She was sold in 1988 and became Captain Ray Etle's "WHITE STAR IV" from Barnegat Light, NJ. She later became Captain Arnold 'Speedy' Hubert's "SUPER SPEEDY EXPRESS" from Captree, NY and then headed south to Virginia Beach, VA and sailed as the "SUPER SPORT II". The boat then returned to Captree, NY and resumed sailing as the "SUPER SPEEDY EXPRESS". The boat presently sails as Captain Wes Eastman's "LADY MERRILEE ANN III" from Seabrook, NH.
