Silver Moon II by Joe Selby
Another Selby view of Silver Moon II
Silver Moon II
I had a few meals in there. There were some very unique curved-glass windows at the forward end of the saloon.
Thank you for the pics.
Just imagine, your pics are now viewed world wide.
When you can, please post more. This is near a time (past) window of such wonderful lines and time..
Anybody know what Mathis - Trumpy beauty this was that got nailed in Key West in Hurricane Betsy in 1965? At least I think it was a Mathis.
Here's another Mathis I wish I could identify.
And another un-named Mathis:
And another un-identified one:
This one in St. Pete in 1930.
Pretty sure this one shot in Tampa was a Mathis, older with transom stern.
I have this same image saved in a folder of vintage boats. I have it labeled as Paradise II, 106', built in 1929. Googling this, I found a reference to it once having been owned by Marilyn Monroe.
Notice what looks like it could be a perforated "I" beam on the roof running from the stack to the stern. It certainly wasn't original. I wonder is it was an attempt to stiffen the vessel. The round holes were obviously intended to lighten the beam.
Can't believe Paradise II is still around, but she's listed on the Charter Yachts site as originally the Luneta of 1929. She also bore the names Jedge, Carolyn, Azalea Queen, Genie, and Regina. Her port of registry is Philadelphia and her home port is Marshallsberg, N.C. The photo here is from my database as a possible candidate for the 1929 Luneta. I'm not sure these photos are of the same vessel.
She sure looks "hogged" in the photo, so that wouldn't surprise me.
I just found this old postcard. Anyone know anything about what vessel she was originally? She's definitely a Mathis-Trumpy.
On second thought, maybe she's not a Mathis-Trumpy. But she sure looks familiar.
Here's another shot of interest. Any ideas on the identities of these?
A bit new here, I just ran across my first Trumpy in the wild! I've been researching Trumpy's for about a month now, (its my summer job) and I heard of her, but wasn't sure she was still around. I give you, Celebration!
