Follow the links here for video and more info. YouTubes are especially informative. As for me, I’m thrilled to see Capt Tim making a 50-year-old doing what Jakobsen intended right through the sixth boro.  Fred here says her pilothouse raises hydraulically.  Her names since 1958 include Hustler II, Margaret Moran, and Jolene Rose.

Many thanks to Norm from Maine who identified a vessel I’ve wondered about since I caught it–below–just before a thunderstorm last summer. See this link for a much better shot/enlarged too of Black Knight, built 1958 by Goudy & Stevens in Boothbay, Maine, loa 75’x19’x8′.

So, fantastic . . . here’s an unidentified black-hulled vessel roughly same size on the same East River last summer mid-July. Anyone identify this one?
