EFFORT, Brooklyn, NY – 1950
The "EFFORT" from Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, NY circa 1950. She was a converted World War II Subchaser built in 1942 at Wickford, RI as the "SC–1300". The "EFFORT" was operated by Captain Fred Wrege and like the "ELMAR", she made her maiden voyage on July 3, 1949. Captain Wrege passed away in 1961 and his son-in-law, Charles VanDerVoort, took over the operation of the "EFFORT". She was finally dismantled in 1970.
