Captain James 'Speedy Jim' Bogan Sr. bringing the "PARAMOUNT III" into Manasquan Inlet circa 1940. The Johnson Brothers Boat Works built the "PARAMOUNT III" in 1939 for the Bogan family and she sailed from the Manasquan River Yacht Basin, Brielle, NJ. Captain John Bogan Jr. operated the "PARAMOUNT III" until the end of World War II when Captain Charles Fuchs took over the helm. The "PARAMOUNT III" caught fire at her dock in 1948, but she was quickly repaired and her gasoline engine was replaced with a diesel engine. She returned to the Bogan fleet as the "FALCON" and Captain William Egerter Jr. took over the operation of this vessel. Later, Captain Al Wirth purchased the boat and sailed her as the "FALCON" from Atlantic Highlands, NJ. Photo courtesy of Captain Dave Bogan Sr.
