BROOKLYN V, Brooklyn, NY – 1980
Captain Bob Sapanara's "BROOKLYN V" from Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, NY circa 1980. Her construction began in 1977 at AlumaShip Corp., Jeanerette, LA, but due to financial difficulties, the shipyard was unable to finish construction. The unfinished hull was then transported to Gulf Craft at Patterson, LA where she was completed and delivered to Captain Bob Sapanara later in 1977. She was one of the fastest party boats in the region and later sailed from Sheepshead Bay as Captain Kevin Bradshaw's "DOROTHY B VIII" and then from Calabash, NC as Captain Larry Horowitz's "SUPER VOYAGER II". The vessel is now sailing as the "DOLPHIN EXPRESS" from Port Aransas, TX.
