PENNSY, Brielle, NJ – 1961
The "PENNSY" from Bogan's Basin, Brielle, NJ circa 1961. Higgins Industries Inc. built her in 1944 at New Orleans, LA as the World War II PT Boat "PT-457". The Bogan family converted the boat and operated her as the party boat "PENNSY". She later became Captain Al Wirth's "FALCON" from Atlantic Highlands, NJ. After being stored at a Staten Island, NY boat yard for a few years, she was dismantled in 1991. Photo courtesy of Captain John Bogan Jr.
