EFFORT III, Brooklyn, NY – 1939
This photo of Captain Fred Wrege's "EFFORT III" shows her returning to Pier 6 at Sheepshead Bay in 1939. She is sporting black hull paint, which was applied to hide the rust streaks caused by the steel hull fasteners utilized in her original construction. In 1949, Captain Fred Wrege purchased a surplus World War II Subchaser and soon sold the "EFFORT III" to Captain Jimmy Carves who sailed her from Perth Amboy, NJ as his "BELBOY III". She was finally dismantled in 1957. Photo courtesy of the Captain Fred Wrege and Captain Charles VanDerVoort families.
