SHAMROCK, Point Pleasant Beach, NJ – 1978
Captain Jack Bogan's and Captain John Bogan Jr's "SHAMROCK" from Point Pleasant, NJ circa 1978. The "SHAMROCK" specialized in drifting along the Jersey shore for jumbo Fluke during the summer months and bottom fished during the off-season. Sutton Boat Works built this steel hulled vessel in 1966 at Tarpon Springs, FL as the "CAPT. BILL II". She later sailed from Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, NY under the same name. The "SHAMROCK" was confiscated by the federal government in 1985 and sold at auction. Photo Courtesy of Captain Jack Bogan.
