FRIENDSHIP III, Brooklyn, NY – 1986
Captain Mark Brent's FRIENDSHIP III from Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, NY circa 1986. She was built in 1974 by Gulf Craft at Patterson, LA and originally sailed as the "CAPT. APPLEGATE" from Atlantic City, NJ. Captain Brent sailed her from Sheepshead Bay for a few years and later relocated with the vessel to Massachusetts where he began a new venture doing whale watching tours. She later returned to her party boat status when she became the "MOHAWK EXPLORER" from Belmar, NJ. She again changed owners and names when she became Captain Bob Elsey's "NIGHT HAWK" from Belmar, NJ. Alas, she was sold in 2005 and relocated to Monterey, CA, where she is again running whale watching tours as the "MONTEREY PRINCESS".
