Hi Guys, I'm Brand New to I'm the guy who has all the old party boats photos and facts. Anything you are looking for or want to know about that old Party Boat you fished "back in the Day". I'm ready to try and help spark those old memories.

Okay, this is what I have on the "RIP". She was built in 1939 at Camden, NJ as the "NAMANI", she sailed half day (4 hrs.) from Wildwood, NJ and was skipper by Captain George Shober, and his wife Molly worked the deck on most days. She has since been dismantled.

The Jet

I am not sure who had it built but, I do know that she is a Price built boat and that the second owner, Wayne Westerlind rafted her up at Captree and sailed with her for a number of yrs. before ole Billy Doll took over

Nautican, Gallilee RI

How about this one? Fished and worked on it in mid to late 60's - great codfishing on Coxes ledge in those days. Even right outside of Pt. Judith in the winter!

The Jamaica

Not an oldie, but what kind of hull is the Jamaica? A Gulfcraft? The thing is a tank and is one of the most stable aluminum boats I've fished on.

Welcome aboard.

With all those great pics and data there has to be a soft cover book in your future. I would think such a work covering our area or the northeast including the newer boats and a chapter on the companies who built these vessels would be hotly received.

The Jamaica was built by Derecktor Shipyard. You're right, it is a very stable, comfortable boat to fish on. You hardly even feel 6-8's.

I'm pretty sure the Jamaica is a Blount (RI) boat. Same boat as the Tampa IV .
They also built the Viking Star or is it the Starship?
