Just to confirm an earlier mention of the Flyer she was in fact sunk in '91 off Jones Beach. She sank so fast she most likely broke up when she hit bottom and a severe storm shortly after brought many pieces of her up onto Jones Beach.
NOW WE KNOW THAT SOME FERRIES HAVE GONE ON TO OTHER LOCALES:
JOH asks: WHERE IS IS THE EVENING STAR? WAS THAT BOAT A BOONDOGGLE?
Hi guys, in answer to the question of where the Evening Star is she is currently in Wilmington, NC under the name Royal Winner Princess II. Here is a picture of her. The second picture is the dining room and anyone familiar with the boat knows that there is a glass etching of the boat in the dining room. If you zoom in on the picture you can see the glass etching still has the name EVENING STAR underneath the etched boat. It may be hard to pick up but see if you can spot it. Enjoy the pics.
