GASOON, Far Rockaway, NY – 1928
A 1928 postcard for Captain Frank Henning’s 'Unsinkable' party boat "GASOON" from Far Rockaway, NY. (Air tanks were strapped into her hull compartments to give her the 'unsinkable' status.) Built in 1911 at Jersey City, NJ, she began fishing in 1917 from that port under the command of Captain Frank Berringer. In 1926, Captain Frank Henning bought her and moved the boat to Simis' Beach at Far Rockaway, NY. Postcard courtesy of Captain John Bogan Jr.
