CAPT. JOSEPH II, Captree, NY – 1966
Captain Stanley Joseph's "CAPT. JOSEPH II" from Captree, NY circa 1966. This classic 72-footer was built in 1964 by Gillikin Boat Works at Harkers Island, NC and had four GM 6-71 diesel engines turning three propellers (two engines were connected in tandem to the center propeller shaft.) She later became one of the late Captain Tommy Marconi's "PILOT II" boats from Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, NY. Sadly, the boat burned to the waterline during a Flounder fishing trip in the fall of 1982.
