SEA PIGEON II, Brooklyn, NY – 1940
Captain Steve Onody's skipjack-style party boat "SEA PIGEON II" from Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, NY circa 1940. The Scott McBurney Boat Yard at Brooklyn, NY built the boat for Captain Onody in 1934. In 1945, Captain Onody sold the "SEA PIGEON II" to Captain 'Willy' Sutherland, who later sold the boat to Captain 'Heckey' Sakstein. In 1967 Captain Sakstein sold her to Captain Irving Moss who renamed her "DIXIE" and continued to sail her from Sheepshead Bay. Photo Courtesy of Captain Ron Moss.
