SEA PIGEON, Perth Amboy, NJ – 1986
Captain Marty Haines' "SEA PIGEON" from Perth Amboy, NJ circa 1986. The "SEA PIGEON" was built in 1961 at Stevenson Boat Works, Staten Island, NY and specialized in Raritan Bay Fluke and Flounder fishing. In 1986, Captain Haines replaced her with the "SEA PIGEON IV" (Captain Al Coley's "BETTY W III" from Sheepshead Bay, NY.) Later in 1986, the "SEA PIGEON" was sold to Captain Al Hilliard and became the party boat "PROWLER" from Atlantic Highlands, NJ. In 1990, the "PROWLER" relocated to Oregon where she sailed as the "WINDWALKER". She foundered during a storm in 1992 and was a total loss.
