MARILYN JEAN II, Brooklyn, NY – 2008
Captains Tony Santella and Ryan Smith's "MARILYN JEAN II" from Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, NY heads out for an evening of Striper fishing in early June 2008. Built in 1964 by A.C. Boat & Engine Works at Atlantic City, NJ, she originally sailed as the "MIJOY" from Waterford, Connecticut. The boat later sailed as Captain Edward Royles' "ROYAL FLUSH" from Wildwood, NJ and then as Captain Peter Guoba's "LADY SHERYL" from Freeport, NY before joining the Sheepshead Bay Fleet. The boat caught fire at a boatyard in April 2009 and was destroyed.
