ISLAND PRINCESS, Captree, NY – 1995
The "ISLAND PRINCESS" from Captree, New York circa 1995. Built in 1962 by A.C. Boat Works at Atlantic City, NJ as the "CAPTAIN STARN III", she was sold in 1974 to Captains Tony 'Mo' Barbato and Dan Kenny who relocated her to Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, NY as their charter boat "BIG MOHAWK II". After that, she was sold to Captains Marty Tave and Gary Fagan and sailed from Belmar, NJ under the same "BIG MOHAWK II" name. She later joined the Captree, NY fleet as the "ISLAND PRINCESS". The vessel has since found her way back to Belmar, NJ, and is now sailing once again as the "BIG MOHAWK II" operated by Captain Chris Hueth.
