TRAVELER, Brooklyn, NY – 1978
This 1978 photo shows Captain Gerry Nappi's "TRAVELER" just before being launched at Yank Boat Works, Tuckahoe, NJ. Captain Nappi sailed the "TRAVELER" from Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, NY until he sold her and she became the "CAPT. BOB JOSEPH" from Captree, NY. She was sold again and became Captain Joe Miller's "ATOMIC III" from Sheepshead Bay.
The boat later became Captain Al Coley's "BETTY W" from Sheepshead Bay and then moved back to Captree, NY as Captain Patrick Gillen's "CAPT. GILLEN III". She then sailed as Captain Charlie Buser's "CAPTREE STAR II" from Captree, NY, and is currently sailing as Captain Des O'Sullivan's "CELTIC QUEST IV" from Port Jefferson, NY.
