APACHE III, Bronx, NY – 1975
The "APACHE III" from City Island, Bronx, NY circa 1975. Built in 1960 at Rock Hall, MD as the "THUNDERBIRD", she was sold in the following year to Raffealea Cerbone who renamed her as the "APACHE III" and relocated the boat to City Island, Bronx, NY. The boat later moved to Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, NY and sailed from Pier 3. Sold in 1980, she became Captain Mike Danon's "CAPT. LOU IV" from Freeport, NY. Sold once again, the boat has since undergone a full remodeling and is presently sailing as the "PLACIDA QUEEN" from Englewood, FL.
