I hadn't seen him in a while but we had some good times back in the 70's

Good guy, his brother Fred was a class act as well

I used to get a kick out of talking with his dad, Tootsie. He had a million stories

Power boat racing was always big on the Jersey shore.
This was a race for fishing boats in 1921.

Fine catch,.... sorry to hear about your boat and Sandy. The boat I rebuilt just barely escaped being wiped out. I think another foot of water and she would have been gone. As was 3 of the 4 blocks holding her up waged away. The engines arenít prefect (mostly a couple of little oil leaks Iím working on), but they do seem to be good and reliable so Iím really pleased. The boat did turn out pretty nicely so Iím pleased. This past summer I had her over to the north fork of Long Island (Greenport, Shelter Island etc) and out to Block Island, Mystic Seaport a number of times. So sheís starting to get around.
Ned, I bought my Carolina Classic up your way, out of Spicer's in Noank. I brought her home in April after Sandy and we had trouble finding a functioning fuel dock after the storm. We had to run up the Mystic River and found a large marina that had a working diesel pump. Then it was a nice 125 mile shakedown cruise back to Morgan Creek (Cheesequake Creek) in NJ. The Mystic area was really charming. We commuted back and forth for 5 weeks, doing spring prep on the new boat. My wife and I enjoyed the area and took advantage of many of the great restaurants on our weekend commutes. We visited Mystic in the past on vacation, but got to know the area a lot better after visiting on 5 consecutive weekends. Thanks for bringing back some great memories from my childhood!! Art. . .

Seeing the picture of that kid sitting on the pier fishing, brings back memories. I can feel the little splinters and smell the creosote cooking out of the wood.

Glad you enjoyed it up this way..... I have too say that the boating here around Fishers Island Sound and eastern Long Island almost rivals the Jersey shore there inside Sandy Hook.

Thanks for posting.

Book titled ď Anglers and Muscle Heads ď back in the 1920ís ....reference to how schools of giant tuna frequently came into Sandy Hook NJ area. The bluefish netters in doryís would pull in the nets to avoid the tuna - which they called ď horse mackerelĒ back then .......

Ok,.... So she didnít start out as a fishing boat. Fleur-De-Lis was built about 1929 by the Kofoed Boat works of Keyport New Jersey for rum running during prohibition. óA very active going on off the Jersey shore.ó-
Fleur-De-Lis was powered by triple Liberty aircraft engines, one of which can be seen being swapped out here.
The most interesting thing about her is that after surviving her first career bringing liquor in from the schooners offshore she went on to a long career as a party boat out of Wildwood New Jersey. Later on her shear was cut down , I presume so the fishermen would be closer to the water. She survived well into the 1950ís. A real testament to how rugged a boat she was.

Sorry the pics came up first,... Its tough posting multiple pics from my phone and getting things all in order.

Thanks Ned! Grew up in Matawan right next to Cheesequake State Park so I'm very familiar with Morgan, Cheesequake Creek and the surrounding areas.

Ned, thanks for the memories. My first big fishing boat was an Ulrichsen lapstrake 27 ' flybridge. Sometimes I wish I still had it, even with all the work involved.

My parents first Ďrealí boat was this 1951 30 ft Ulrichsen, a really great boat!

Thanks for the picture. I used to run mine down the East River from College Point, Queens out to Ambrose. Can't tell you how many times I got chased out of Leonardo. LOL

good fluking around the EARL pier in Leonardo!
Since 9-11 I understand they really expanded the security zone and donít mess around at all with boats that come in a bit to close.

Always scored some nice fluke there and around Port Monmouth. I got to know the Leonardo pier well when I was in the Navy in the mid sixties.
