Historical Views of the Rockaways
Today's view shows two of the last boats about to come out of winter storage at their home port, a few years before their runs to the point came to an end, due to a lack of ridership!
The boats shown are the Frederick Lundy and the Commander, wrapped in their winter coats, devoid of snow, ready for a coat of paint, and other necessary maritime preparations for the summer's run to the point!
Last summer I spied the Commander running in the Hudson River as a dinner and cruise boat.
I believe the vessel operated out of a port near West Point, the U.S. Military Academy upstate on the Hudson River. Does anyone have a disposition on the Frederick Lundy? Was it converted? Scrapped? Sunk? Or still running somewhere?
Let us know at The Wave, and thank you!
