CAPTAIN STARN III, Atlantic City, NJ – 1970
The "CAPTAIN STARN III" was built in 1962 by Atlantic City Boat Works and was the sister ship of both the "CAPTAIN STARN IV" and "CAPTAIN STARN V". Operated by Captain Ed Egnor, she did double duty by offering both sightseeing trips and fishing trips.
Purchased in 1974 by Captains Tony 'Mo' Barbato and Dan Kenny, they relocated her to Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, NY as their charter boat "BIG MOHAWK II". Sold again to Captains Marty Tave and Gary Fagan, she sailed from Belmar, NJ under the same "BIG MOHAWK II" name.
She later became the "ISLAND PRINCESS" from Captree, NY and has since found her way back to Belmar, NJ, where she is now sailing once again as the "BIG MOHAWK II" under the command of Captain Chris Hueth. Photo courtesy of Don Nyce.
