The one with the teeth was running when blocked, the other 4 not so much, but some nice mahogany under the paint I'd bet. The building to the left is the Cornell Steamboat Company, circa 1827. The one to the right is a restaurant.
Some folks are not aware that some of the earliest submarine theories developed on, near and under the Toms River. There is a submarine memorial in a waterside park roughly a half mile from the discovery site.
There were several used as party boats along the coast. I know I was on one from Wildwood as a kid for fluke. My Father was a good friend of the Jack Bogan, both grew up in Bayonne, always fished Bogan's boat's out of Brielle and Pt Pleasant Beach, liked the Shamrock. I have a bunch of fare tickets from way back, old reels and cane poles. Fishing was a lot simpler back then
Cool! As a young lad in about 1969, while visiting the Sweetwater Casino, my father introduced me to an older gentlman who was purported to be the PT Boat's designer (although it certainly wasn't W. Hickman) but I cannot recall his name.
