LOUNGER, Bay Head, NJ – 1929
The "LOUNGER" was built 1892 at Brooklyn, New York as a private yacht. She would later function as one of the many 'set line' fishing boats that supplied New York's Fulton Street Fish Market. In 1929, she was purchased by Captain Howard Duncan who began sailing her from Bay Head, NJ, making her the very first party boat to sail from Manasquan Inlet in New Jersey. And in 1930, Captain Duncan later relocated the "LOUNGER" to Point Pleasant, NJ and became the first party boat operator to sail from that port.
