HELEN H, Brooklyn, NY – 1932
A 1932 postcard for the original "HELEN H" operated by Captain Alex Hansen. She sailed from Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, NY. Captain Harry Rigby (the owner/operator of the party boat "BROOKLYN") designed the boat and she was built in 1930 by Ernest Fiedler at Bergen Beach Boat Works, Brooklyn, NY. She later became the "FIDUS", the "ELLEN S", and then Captain Joe Burns' “MOHAWK” from Point Pleasant, NJ. She is another example of a 'skipjack' class party boat.
