CAPT. COLLET, Atlantic City, NJ – 1970
Captain George Collet's "CAPT. COLLET" sailed from Starn's Pier at Atlantic City, New Jersey. Charles H. Stowman & Sons built the boat in 1929 at Dorchester, New Jersey as the privately owned vessel "MALABAR". In 1946, Captain Clarence Starn purchased the "MALABAR" at an estate sale and she joined the Starn's Fleet under the command of Captain Elwood Starn. She became the "CAPT. COLLET" in 1969 and later became the commercial fishing dragger "DEFIANCE". Photo courtesy of Don Nyce.
