As Captain Nicky told me, this vessel was originally a 'rum runner' that his dad had bought post WWII that sailed out of Coney Island. This party boat was the original 'MARY' and was purchased out of Montauk NY.
As Mel and Mike noted in Mike's Memorabilia, this vessel was built in 1930 in Brooklyn, NY as Captain Mattie Best's "MISCHIEF" who sailed out from Babylon, NY as their was no Captree State Park at that time. Years later she ended up in Captree with this image from the late 1970s when she was running charters out of the same location.
One of the neat historical facts about this vessel was that it was noted as a high powered vessel that originally had a big wind shield and had a 600 hp gas engine, and there was a very good reason why. Remember that we mentioned "rum runner," and that the speed was need to get away from the US Revenue Cutters which would stop, search, seize and a number of times, purposely sink these vessels right in sight of a shoreline.
I never knew of, or heard about this party/charter boat, but as Captain Nicky left off, "it was a very good boat."
