BOBBY II, Belmar, NJ – 1949 In 1944, a 63-foot Air Sea Rescue boat was built by the Herreshoff Manufacturing Co. at Bristol, RI as the U.S. Navy "C-77461" and later transferred to the U.S. ARMY as the "P-651" and then transferred to the U.S. Coast Guard as the "CG-63050". Five years later, in 1949, Captain Dave Shinn purchased the boat as surplus and converted it for party boat fishing. He named it the "BOBBY II". This photo shows the "BOBBY II" when she arrived at Belmar, NJ in 1949. She still had her US Coast Guard name "CG-63050" painted on her hull. In the right background is the "GERTRUDE H".
