ATHENE, Brooklyn, NY – 1913
Captains Dave and Jacob Martin's "ATHENE" is seen here fishing for Cod on the Cholera Banks in the winter of 1913. Built in 1884 at Brooklyn, NY as the sailing sloop "BERTIE", and later named the "FORGET-ME-NOT", she was the second party boat to be owned by the famous Martin family.
Purchased in 1911 and powered by a gasoline engine, she became one of the earliest party boats to sail from Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, NY. With the arrival of the "GIRALDA" in 1914, the Martin Brothers parted with the "ATHENE" and her fate beyond that date is unclear.
