You are correct. Sat on the hard at Brys Marina in Neptune for 10 Yrs. ? Always drove by and checked it out. It is a Beast. Has not seen water in 10 Yrs. or more ? Lot's of hull to play with for the right price.That boat fished out of shark river A LOT of years ago, if i remember correctly is first showed up in the early 80's and came from NY, had to trap tray/tank across the stern with a remote operated trap door on the bottom to dump the catch(shorts) when the law was in pursuit . Was on the hard in Bry's storage yard for many years. I've heard it likes to roll a bit.

I've known all the owners of that boat since it showed up in shark river except the last one, believe it had a 8-71 in it in the beginning must just be a hull now, i believe it was last owned by Bry's for the storage fees owed on it. I used to own the corner property & dock just east of bry's yard and ramp i think the guy has a tiki bar there now. If you've been around the river for any time i bet i know ya .
Worked on this boat when it was new, Brooklyn N.Y. Circa 1982. Boat had a 8-71 Detroit and an original North Star 6000 loran. A eastern welding pot hauler with a hydraulic ram for the davit. We fished 900 wood half rounds, most of the gear was fished "flat", that is without bouys, we'd grapple the trawls in the channel, 50 pot strings if memory holds true. Lots of cut and run to avoid the ships in the narrows under the Verrazano bridge. I'm still in touch w the original owner, maybe I can scare up some pics. Fun days indeed, I can still hear his voice in my head yelling "two hands like a boxer Paddy" exhorting me to pick the pot faster.
