HELEN H, Brooklyn, NY – 1938
The original "HELEN H" skippered by Captain Alex Hansen circa 1938. She sailed from Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, NY. She was built at Brooklyn, NY in 1930 and Harry Rigby (the owner/operator of the party boat "BROOKLYN") designed the boat. She later became the "FIDUS", the "ELLEN S", and then Captain Joe Burns' "MOHAWK" from Point Pleasant, NJ. Boats of this type were referred to as 'skipjack class' party boats.
